Opening Day is Here!!!

It's Easter Sunday. He Has Risen!!!

A month of spring training games have now whittled the rosters down to 25 players each (plus those on the DL, of course). This is it. Every prognosticator has made their choices as to who will win it all, but the games aren't played on paper. They're played on the diamond.

And tonight, the first of 2,430 games will be played, opening up another season of Major League Baseball!!!

The 2015 season opens with the St. Louis Cardinals taking on the Chicago Cubs at beautiful, but still being renovated, Wrigley Field. The bleachers won't be ready supposedly until June. And while modern technology has now started to take over the park (they now have a video board in left???), it still holds a lot of the charm and old-time feel the park has had in it's 100+ year history.

But enough about the field. Let's get on to the more important issue. The I-55 rivalry starts in earnest. There's no hiding here. Both teams have re-tooled for this year with off-season free agent signings and trades to supplement their rosters. We welcome Joe Maddon, Jon Lester, Miguel Montero, Jason Heyward, and others to the rivalry.

Right now, everyone is even at 0-0. Time to play ball.
