I know it was for me.
Not a lot needs to be said, but a three-run walk-off home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to start the season? Beautiful.
The Dodgers won a close one and I was there. It was an amazing game. I was dreading opening day for a while and I really wanted a win. That felt really good.
That’s for me to enjoy, though. I’m gonna hold onto that one for a while. Here’s a little something else.
Hong-Chih Kuo threw virtually nothing but fastballs up, walked the first batter on four pitches, and still owned.
Even if that PitchFX is off, his fastballs were all still in the upper half of the zone or just slightly above it.
He threw only five non-fastballs, all change-ups. Four of them went for balls, one was a foul-off.
I get the feeling Broxton gets demoted since his fastball is no longer an out-pitch, but that may change later in the season.
