I was too depressed to post about the season opener any earlier. If the Vet still existed, I would be contemplating throwing myself off from the lip of the 500 level.
Okay, not really.
Still, seeing Jose Mesa of all people come in and save the season opener for the Pirates was a little disheartening. It was only the first game of the season, so there's no reason whatsoever for hitting the panic button just yet. The flip side of that coin was seeing Mike Lieberthal lay down a perfect surprise sacrifice bunt, even if it wasn't what Vuke gave him the sign for.
Game 2 is on the MLB Extra Innings Preview package tonight with the Wolfman starting against the Pirates' Kris Benson. I have every intention of catching it as well.
