If anything, Werth has to spear somebody….
If those of you who watch wrestling know what I am talking about, he bears a resemblance to the Rated R Superstar

Hooray for Opening Day. Play ball!
THE BRAVES HAVE COME BACK TO BASE-BALL!
March 31st, 201112:53 pm
I must be physic. I’m at work decided to plop over to AJC to see if David posted a new blog posted and whala. That or it’s 10mins away from the first pitch and logically one would be posted.

Werth to Utley is was Edge was to Matt Hardy

Did anyone remind the Nats that rain is looming? Get the show on the road
DOB, I don’t think the White Sox pick is crazy at all. Best roster 1-25 in that division, even without Jake Peavy. Great blog and great work as always.
Why does the countdown clock still showing over an hour left until opening day?
March 31st, 201112:55 pm
Call me “out of the loop” but where is Kawakami at for opening day? Not being sarcastic, just didn’t want to google it.
Let it begin! LET IT BEGIN!!!
5 minutes more and I may run naked on the street. OPENING DAY
March 31st, 201112:56 pm
My MLB app won’t play the Braves audio feed and it says that MLB is doing a .TV preview yet its telling me I need an account…
WTF is going on with the app?!
Wow, Jason Werth batting in the #2 spot of the order for the Nationals? I didnt expect to see that.
Meanwhile, Heyward is batting 6th for us, lol.

Anybody know if there is anywhere we can listen to the game for free today seeing that it is opening day?

BP bought it and I am considering…
But with Tiger 12 coming out w/ The Masters this year, already getting Mortal Kombat in 3 weeks, and softball fees needing paid in a couple weeks, I may hold off a bit.
I am thinking about buying it too
McFann Ô Ô
It’s ab-b-bout to start!
Directv free MLB for like ten days
Thanks for the blog, DOB.
How are all you guys getting to watch the game? Are we not stuck at work?? I have to watch GameTracker
March 31st, 201112:58 pm
Life is good. My Braves are back!
DOB, will you marry me?
Happy Opening Day everyone. Glad this appears to be a go as I skipped 2 classes for it!
The beautiful marathon. Grueling and tedious at times. And yet so rewarding for those who stick with it, day after day. I’m not really even talking about the players getting paid big bucks to do this for a living, either.
I mean you all. And me. All of us in the booths, the pressboxes, the box seats and nosebleeds, in front of TVs or listening to radios. This is so much of what we’re about, isn’t it? For better or worse, and I sure like to think for better.
Nothing else compares. No other sport is even remotely similar to the epic nature of baseball. The thick, complex novel that is a baseball season. Sure, it can be enjoyed in bits and pieces, with a good series here or an exciting game there. But being there for every game, turning every page at the pace it was meant to be turned, that’s where baseball gives us the most satisfaction.
And that, of couse, is also why it’s fallen out of favor with a big segment of the population over the last few decades. Because these days, some don’t think it’s worth taking the time to appreciate and enjoy any leisure activity that moves at such a relatively slow pace for nine innings, much less for 162 games of nine innings apiece.
Then again, this isn’t really a leisure activity anyway, right? This is baseball, man. This is for the serious sports fan. The thinking sports fan.
-Our one and only DOB
Thanks for everything Dave, looking forward to the season.
What radio station will the Braves game be on? I’m at work and want to listen in.

Which local Atlanta radio station is the game on?
If I stop typing, my fingers have frozen.
A Nationals official, in his infinite wisdom, decided to open the pressbox windows. It’s 40 degrees!
Opening Day with Fredi and The Braves with All-Star cast…Go Braves.

A Deployed Braves Fan
I would appreciate a good PBP. They are not showing the game on USS Kearsarge in the Med.

I can get the PbP to you til 1CT and then someone else will have to take over when I go to lunch…
Thank you for your service!
March 31st, 20111:08 pm
I don’t like the cold weather. Our boys play better when its hot. Opening day should always be held in the warmer cities, like the super bowl.
Brian from SC
Hello, everyone. Long time, no comment. Go Braves in 2011.
I was having issues connecting to the MLB.com Iphone app over AT&T 3G. Switching to Wifi got it working.
This Beat the Streak thing…I’ve heard of it, but can you explain a bit?
YAY!! Opening Day
March 31st, 20111:09 pm
When are they going to redraw the freakin MLB coverage areas? I live in southern NC and pay for MLBtv and the games in Washington and Baltimore are always blacked out. They aren’t on local tv so…

Let’s swat some Nats.
March 31st, 20111:11 pm
I’m off today and didn’t even ask for it. Amazing.
Seems like the local club is getting hyped by plenty of people, eh? Fredi’s got a lot to live up to. We’ll see if he and his club can make it happen.
wheelz – I can, if needed…
Season has started!!!!!!!
LET’S GO BRAVES!!!
on mlb.com, if you correctly choose 56 consecutive players to get a hit on 56 consecutive days, you win 5.6million
1st pitch 1:11 ET
And the baseball season is underway
Lets go Braves!!!!!!!!!
Im furious. For some reason MLB.tv doesnt Work on my CPU at work anymore! Just a blank screen!!!!
March 31st, 20111:12 pm
Prado quickly behind the count 0-2 on 2 called strikes
nats fans cheerin because this is the best game of their season
Try updating your flash player software
Marteeen bounces slowly to the pitcher on an 2-2 pitch…
An excuse me swing by Prado.
March 31st, 20111:13 pm
Opening day blog, good work as always, thanks DOB.
Ha Ha Go!!! Braves!!!
Prado evens the count at 2-2 and then taps an excuse me out in front and is thrown out by Livan easily at 1b
prado ground out 1 down
Nate flies out to left…
A pop fly by McLouth.
Do you wanna let me have this or do you wanna take over?
AZ Braves Fan
Aaargh! Cox Cable Phoenix BLOWS! I’ve had the Extra Innings package for 4 years now, and EVERY year on opening day there is some sort of “technical” issue. This year, the only MLB channel that isn’t working is, wait for it, the Braves game! Sure, I’ve escalated it. I’m sure they’ll get it fixed about 5pm.
Oh well, I guess there are 161 *other* Braves games to watch….
Prado dribbles to an infielder to make the first out of the Braves 2011 baseball season.
McLouth pops out to Michael Morse.
Nice to see MCLOUTH being aggressive, to bad it results in a fly out
March 31st, 20111:14 pm
nate flies out 2 down
McLouth flies out for the second out.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
