Opening Day!

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, so if you're watching along at home, feel free to make your presence known in the comments.
