Opening Day Blues

Well, at least the Reds 2-1 loss wasn’t unexpected.  I’m actually expecting a lot of those this year.

Even worse, the Reds tried to send down Johnny Gomes, who hit well this spring, and brought up Darnell McDonald to play CF while Tavares has the flu.  I’m not an expert, but I believe Chris Dickerson could have filled in at center until Tavares returns, and then the Reds could have a potential power hitter (Gomes) play in LF.  Instead, Dusty goes with the Hairston/McDonald 2 step.  Ugh.

I tried to watch that game, but it was blacked out. I’m no where near Cincinnati or New York. Anyone else have this problem? I’m hoping this isn’t some kind of effort by DirecTV to get people to buy the Extra Innings package.

I ended up watching Cleveland and Texas.

It’s shaping up to be a long season.

Meanwhile Montreal’s season is looking to be pretty short.
