College basketball just ended. I’ve finally updated the largely unnecessary player cards on the sidebar. Dusty Baker allowed a top-of-the-rotation starter coming off a serious arm injury throw 114 pitches over five innings on a 40 degree day. Yep… Must be Opening Day!
The Brewers take on the Giants today in quite the lopsided pitching matchup: Jeff Suppan vs. Tim Lincecum. I don’t really get using Suppan as the Opening Day starter, but in the grand scheme it really doesn’t matter. The other notable change this year is Corey Hart and J.J. Hardy have switched spots in the lineup. I like Hardy hitting second, but if it helps Hart develop some patience then I won’t complain.
The weather seems shaky today in San Francisco, but the game is ready to begin without any delay. Let’s get 2009 underway!
Hey, sweet. I paid for MLBTV, and yet their feed isn’t working. I’ve called tech support twice, and still no dice. It doesn’t seem as though I’ll be able to even watch this game until after it ends. The best part is I haven’t been following it to this point because I was hoping to start from the beginning, so now I get to follow online from midway through the game! BEST GAMEBLOG EVER.
Maybe I’ll blog the archived game, even though that seems kind of dumb. I guess we’ll see. Hope everyone’s enjoying the game.
