Some may have considered yesterday to be Opening Day, but the season doesn't really start for me until I see the hometown nine in action. Having to wait through everyone else's season openers was sort of like getting picked last on the playground. Well, now we get our fun. And the Blue Jays play in a domed stadium so it seems unlikely that the game will be delayed. So without any further ado, let's get on with today's game, featuring:
Your Minnesota Twins vs. The Dreaded Toronto Blue Jays
April 4, 2006
6:15 PM CDT
Today's key matchup:
Tony Batista vs. Roy Halladay
In their careers, the Batsita v. Halladay matchup looks like this:
AB H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO BA OBP SLG
Batista 24 4 1 0 1 1 0 1 .167 .167 .333
I mean, clearly, if a man with so many RBI and so many 30-HR seasons has struggled this much against Halladay, the whole offense is doomed to struggle, right?
Anyway, unless I'm unexpectedly surprised again, I'll be watching the game on mlb.tv, so if you're watching along at home, feel free to make your presence known in the comments.
