Thoughts on Opening Day(s)

Now that each team has had it's first game of the season, here are some thoughts on Opening Day (and night) action:
  • First run of the season a home run off of Pesky's Pole? Awesome.
  • Albert Pujols is a machine.
  • New season, same Nats.
  • New season, better Phillies.
  • Obama, your first pitch was embarrassing. You knew all year that you'd be doing this, so why not practice a little instead of wasting time doing things like having Clark Kellog let you win at a game of "POTUS". Throwing a decent pitch is obviously your first priority as commander-in-chief.
  • I wonder if there is a better feeling than hitting a home run in your first major league at-bat. Jason Heyward looks like the real deal.
  • Tim Lincecum is Mitch Kramer from Dazed and Confused. (Apparently this observation is not as witty and original as I first thought.)
  • Congrats to the Pirates for having a winning record!
  • Zach Greinke goes six innings with one earned run and four strikeouts, and doesn't get the win. New season, same Royals.
  • The Orioles continue to frustrate me. I miss George Sherrill and his goofy flat-brimmed hat.
