New, comments

It's Opening Day! EDIT: As it turned out, we had one heckuva day here on the blog, in terms of posts. I'm hoping nothing gets missed, so here are some quick links:

Felix Hernandez goes for the Mariners, Francisco Liriano for the Twins. Ken Griffey Jr. is starting in right field for Seattle, as Ichiro is on the disabled list with a bleeding ulcer. Mike Sweeney is expected to be the Mariners' DH, and should be on the disabled list by the fourth inning or so.

I'll be back with a postgame recap, as well.
