Being an avid baseball fan I was anticipating this years opening day with glee. My next door neighbor played with the LA Dodgers while I was growing up so I bleed Dodger blue. So here are the surprises I saw this opening day: Hideo Nomo pitches a Complete game shutout of the Diamondbacks while Johnson gives up his fair share of runs and folds. The Mets with all of that $$ spent on pitching and other players still can't win and gives up 8 runs in 3 innings. I guess the Braves were happy to get rid of Glavine after all The Red Sox's bullpen still sucks. You can't lose to the Devil Rays. The Yankee$ lost Jeter and still kept on winning. They better win is all I have to say It snowed in Baltimore. Maddux pitches awfully and the Braves lose St Louis wins even with what appears to be so so pitching. The Phillies win and show why they spent the money this off season. Yes I know its 1 of 144 games played but it was an interesting Opening day nonetheless. Hopefully for my Dodgers this is a sign of things to come.
