T-Minus Four Hours

Baseball officially kicks off tonight with the reigning World Series Champions, the Philadelphia Phillies, taking on the Atlanta Braves.

Here's a pic of the grounds crew prepping the field for tonight's national audience when they tune in on ESPN2.

It's gorgeous in Philadelphia today. Great baseball weather. Hopefully, by 8 p.m. the weather will still feel OK and not be too cool.

I'll be here for you guys if you want to talk about the game while it's on. Just leave comments and I will comment back.

Update: All the cool cats are here, by the way. I'm talking about the Tom Verduccis of the world and the fellas like that.

And me. I'm here. I don't think that counts for anything, but I am here.

  1. Braves win! Derek Lowe goes 6 strong innings... bullpen shuts 'em down the rest of the way.

  4. I'm conflicted. I have Derek Lowe on my fantasy team. But, I also have Rollins, Howard, and Lidge. Who to cheer for?

  8. apparently Myers lost his fastball along with the 30 pounds he dropped this winter.

  9. Myers lost his fastball early last season... he's changed to a change up pitcher... so the Braves are taking those, and waiting for the fastball late in the count...

  10. I don't like the gold trim on the Phils jerseys. Tell me that's just an opening day thing.
