Baseball season doesn't officially start until the Cincinnati Reds take the field.

They were out there for 13 innings yesterday, doesn't that count?

There has alway been the adage that good pitching will beat good hitting-----I think that was very evident on opening day.

Great performances by Hernnandez, Kershaw, Sale, Strasburg, and others dominated-----overall run production was pretty low yesterday.

Pitching usually is ahead of hitters early in the season, but current trend is showing that an era of good pitching may be here.

Most teams rolled out their best starter yesterday.
I'd imagine that a few more runs will be scored today.
And a few more than that tomorrow.
A few more the day after.

.
Still four aces to go, Baltimore, Tampa bay, Cleveland and Toronto open today, Dickey on the mound for the Blue Jays, Price for the Rays.

In addition, Darvish is going for the Rangers in their second game.

AND The PIRATES, our favorite PITTSBURGH PIRATES are already mathematically ineligible for a winning season.

See ya in 2014 !

Default Arencibia has never caught a knuckler!

Hilarious first 2 innings in Toronto.

Raise your hand if you heard any MLB talking heads on the television discuss the issues Toronto might have with Arencibia catching Dickey. 3 official passed balls in the 2nd inning, both responsible, in part, for both of Cleveland's runs.

On a 4th ball that got away from Arencibia (unofficial), it dribbled about 10 feet toward the first base line, drawing booes from the Toronto fans.

This could get interesting.
