Opening Day Pepper Show!

It’s Opening Day!!!

Padres top the Dodgers

The San Diego Padres started off their 2014 with a win on opening night in Petco Park. Their matchup with the already 2-0 LA Dodgers was a pitches duel early. Andrew Cashner went 6 solid innings giving up only 1 run. The Dodgers started Ryu, Kershaw is out on the DL. He was dominant, blanking the Friars for 7 innings. The Padres rallied in the bottom of the 8th against Brian Wilson, including a Seth Smith blast to gain a 3-1 lead, which was the final score. 26 other teams open on Monday and Houston and NY start it off on Tuesday. Baseball is upon us.

Bold Predictions for 2014

A lot of Baseball blogs have been making “bold” predictions over the last two weeks. Today I will be taking the liberty by giving you Opening Day Bold Predictions.
1. We will have 5 games with first pitch temps under 50 degrees.

I feel like this will be the spring that never comes, while I want Baseball to be played, I don’t want frigid conditions. Can we get 60 degrees please?

2. A catastrophic injury will happen.
I feel like if this happens, I will lose all the viewers from that team. But we rarely get big injuries on Opening Day. It has to happen one year right?

3. At least 3 games will have scores where one team scored 10 or more runs.

Did anyone else notice various high scoring contests this Spring Training?
