What Opening Day 2009 Taught Us

2009 April 6

- Johan Santana still owns.

- C.C. Sabathia still sucks in April.

- The Mets bullpen is capable of holding a 1-run lead for 3 1/3 innings, something I’m pretty sure they weren’t able to do once the entire 2008 season.

- Hanley Ramirez is an absolute beast who deserves to be watched by more than 4,000 people per game.

- Ken Griffey Jr. just looks better in a Mariners uniform. And plays better, apparently.

- The Tigers are on their way to another embarrassing season, keeping pace with the performance of their home city’s industry.

- Cliff Lee was obviously a fluke.

- God punished MLB schedulers and Red Sox fans for forcing the Rays to start their season in Boston, even though they beat them for the pennant last season.

- I have a massive East Coast bias. Or at least an “East of the Mississippi” bias.

- My fantasy teams fucking suck.

Unrelated college basketball-related note: Obama was right.
