Good start to the 2008 season. Nats beating the Braves 3-2 in the 1st game in the new stadium. What made this game an oddity was the Nats got 2 runs in the 1st on 3hits. Then didn't get a base runner after that until Zimmerman's game winning HR in the btm 9th. An idea popped into my head about the Boston-Oakland series in Japan recently. MLB could have scheduled the Boston-Oakland series with the start of the season. Both teams would have played on Monday & Tuesday (3/31 & 4/1), then take off Wednesday & Thursday (for travel) before resuming play on Friday April 4th.
