Happy Opening Day!

I see great things in baseball.  It's our game - the American game.  It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism.  Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set.  Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us.  
~Walt Whitman

Like last year, the year before, and the year before that we wish you a Happy Opening Day! We agree with The Wizard of Oz:

Then again baseball should cut out games in Australia if they want to make opening day even more special.
Some good ones today as our Mets take on the Nationals and for a second year in a row we will be eying that Cubbie Pirates match-up because of great fantasy implications (can't get enough of The Shark
and now Liriano joins the squad....oyevey!). We are ecstatic that baseball is back. To celebrate, how about a weird mix of some baseball tunes, also be sure to check out this list Nick Morrison put together for NPR a few years ago about the great mix of jazz and baseball. Have a great day:
