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?

Baseball is in the Air!

Opening Night is tonight with the Dodgers vs Padres on ESPN.
The Dodgers, will have Ryu tow the rubber tonight as Kershaw (the Dodger ace) has been placed on the 15-Day Disabled List retroactive to March 22.
Cashner, will go for the Padres, in what will be his first Opening Day start. No more exhibition folks! It counts now! Tommorow, the bulk of the 30 teams open up. While mostly day games, their should be some exciting match-ups, which I am looking forward to watching. I will be watching the 1:10 Nats vs Mets game, and honestly can’t wait!!! Today, I am on my way to my local NY Fairway Market to get ready for tommorow, it’s like Baseball’s Super Bowl, yet bigger!
Good luck to all of the teams playing on opening day (except the Nats)!
