It is finally here. Opening Day. Real Baseball.
We should have a prize for the best Zach Britton joke.
So there are a couple of bits of news:
- Ross Atkins says that Roberto Osuna, on the DL with a sore neck, will only be out the 10 days.
- Gibby says that Pearce is at first and Carerra is in left because Estrada is a fly ball pitcher.
- Pompey should be back on the field 'within weeks'. That worries me.
- Aaron Sanchez will make his first start of the season, Jays game five.
