There is something beautiful about watching Opening Day. Every single player, coach, fan, team employee is filled with optimism. On this date, every team is a contender, everyone can see first place just as easily as they can last.
So while Baltimore could very well lose the next 18 times they play the Yankees, today they beat the highest paid pitcher in Major League History and are in first place in the AL East.
Today, I was able to watch four games at one time on the new MLB.tv premium with picture in picture options.
I am just so happy that it is finally back. For a baseball junkie, opening day is the fix from winter's forced abstinence. Welcome back summer, how I missed you.
