Anyone else get that “tingle” for opening night like I did yesterday? Two “original 16” teams, on ESPN, with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan covering the game. A new season has begun.
Last night, Derek Lowe shut Phily down for eight innings, with having to throw only 14 pitches in his last two innings. Watching a “shut down” pitching performance is always more satisfying to me than watching a bunch of batters circle the bases all game, so this was a great way for me to start off the 2009 season.
