Even though the Yankees and Red Sox played the official opener last night, it didn't seem like Opening Day. Opening Day should be that, a DAY game.
Anyway, I see Albert Pujols is off to a slow start...4-5, 2 homers, 3 RBI's and 4 runs scored in the Cards 11-6 win over the Reds.
Roy Halladay showed up big in the Phils 11-1 win over the Nationals. Placido Polanco put himself in the MVP discussion with 3 hits, a homer and 6 RBI's. But it's early.
The Rockies picked up a nice Opening Day win in Milwaukee. Brad Hawpe scored the Rocks first run by scoring from 2nd base on a wild pitch. Franklin Morales made it interesting in the 9th but got the save. Andy Cornell of course e-mailed me after the game and predicted a 162-0 season for Colorado.
Anyway, I watched a lot of baseball today because I couldn't do much else. I'm sick with a sore throat and a small fever. I'm in recuperation mode. I'm also angry because the news director at KNUS, Bill Jones, is the guy who got me sick. All last week he was coughing badly. I even suggested he go see a doctor. Jones kept coughing and I had to tell him to cover his damn mouth. He would just sit there and cough without covering his mouth, time and time again, and it was ticking me off. Sure enough, Friday night I started getting sick. I won't be at KNUS again tomorrow. Thanks Jones. He's a disgusting, walking, coughing bacteria factory. The next time he coughs near me without covering his mouth I might just kick his ugly old ass.
