wow, was that 5 pitches?

Hahaha, first hit of the season is an IF pop that didn't make it to the pitchers mound.

It'd be 3-2 if it weren't for the wind.

Strasburg only threw two balls, and didn't miss a bat once that inning.

Is it just me or is Soriano looking lively? He looked angry at that fly ball, but good angry. #openingdayoptimism

What the hell? Miami is playing in Cincy tonight? Was the start of the season designed by a drunk person?

Yes you can, patience isn't just about taking balls. It's about running up the opposing pitchers' pitch count. Getting yourself out in a hurry against a guy who had TJS not too long ago and is probably going to be monitored for workloads just isn't a great idea.
