Baseball Post (a few days late)

If I had actually written this post on Monday, opening day of the 2009 baseball season, it would have been full of optimism and excitement - after all, the Yankees added CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett to their starting rotation, and Wang was back in good health and ready to take his place as the #2 starter. Four days and two ugly losses later, and I'm already cursing at the TV. Figures that the first two games I'd be able to watch on my own TV were just horrid. Even Baby C was upset at the opening day fiasco.

Mooooom, why is Sabathia sucking sooooo bad?

Oh well. It also figures that the game they actually won with dignity was a day game, me being stuck at work watching the gameday dots move around the bases.

Regardless, it should be a fun and exciting season! At least as of this moment we're tied with that other team from the northeast, at one win and two losses. Even better, the boys in blue are headed out to Kansas City today for a three game series. Hopefully we'll be over .500 by the time we're down in Tampa.

On a sad note, today we're all Angels fans. Their rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Wednesday night, just hours after pitching 6 shutout innings in his season debut. He was only 22. Such a tragedy definitely puts things in perspective.
