As am I. It can be said I'm taking a full day because I don't have any appointments this morning and all I've been doing is reading about the Pirates. I love Opening Day!

The guy on the radio lastnight was projecting the 59 wins for the Pirates this year, then checked the Post-Gazette and Smizik is calling for 58 (Which I think he came up with this number by counting how many times he has bashed Clement since April 1st)

Coonelly is on right now. Man Cook is ten times worse on the radio then in the paper and that's saying something.

I saw that...I just dont think that is a fitting way to kick off the season before the opening day pregame show...

I'll go on record stating that:
(1) I don't like Iwamura leading off - not enough contact for me at that position and potentially slows up AMac. If AMac is on base and pitchers are worried about steals, Iwamura should see better pitches. I'd move AMac to lead off.
(2) I'm not sold on the pitcher hitting 8th. However, I'm not up in arms about it and don't believe that it will likely be any significant difference maker one way or the other. That being written, I'd rather see Cedeno hitting behind LaRoche as Cedeno offers - minimally - some hitting protection for LaRoche. With the pitcher hitting behind LaRoche, I expect Andy to see a diminished number of hittable pitches.
(3) This team has to cut down its Ks. Games against Philly are a perfect example. In Game #1, Jones got fisted (I think with 2 strikes), but made contact and looped one into CF for a single and drove in a run. Not solid contact but . . . can't make things happen if you don't make any contact. In Game #2, same story with Milledge. Definitely with 2 strikes. Made poor contact but was able to sneak it into the OF for a hit and RBI. Not enough power on this team to load up and win on the basis of 3 run HR after 3 run HR. Ks will be the death of this offense. Making contact will give them a fighting chance.


As for today:
If Duke can give up one run or less in first 3 innings, the Bucs will win. If Duke gives up early runs, I envision the younger players tightening up due to Opening Day jitters and we will be looking at a long day from the Bucs' offense.
Would love nothing more than the top of the lineup setting a tone in the first inning and manufacturing a run or two - to be followed by Duke closing the door in the following innnig.

Prediction (heart):
Bucs 5 Dodgers 3
Prediction (head)
Dodgers 6 Bucs 1

Jones on pace for approximately 550 HRs this year. I'm pretty sure that would be a record.
