Re: Worst Opening Day Ever


Since 1977 I've been to all but one opening day (1994, because my slapdick boss at the time wouldn't give me the time off), and unfortunately yesterday's ranked up at the top as one of the big stinkers.

First the positives:

- Tremendous weather, the way opening day should be.
- Pre-game ceremony was top-notch - I loved seeing the HOFers and the gang from the Humm Baby era.
- Bonds stealing a base - yes it was inconsequential, but it showed that Barry was running better than last year.
- Hi-Def Scoreboard
- The 10 yr old kid who announced the 3 batters - he schooled Renel!
- Ray Durham's defense - at least for one day, Ray looked solid defensively


Now the negatives
- After succesfully stealing one base, Bonds then turns in a Riveraesque base running performance
- Peter Happy's abyssmal at bats only to be topped by his bobble that turned a sure inning ending double play into an extended inning where Zito threw upwards of 30 pitches.
- Relief pitching providing zero relief
- silent bats thoughout the order - not really surprising especially w/Peavey pitching, but C'MON!
- Klesko's rally killing DP
