Well, I guess we can let the Bad Guys win their last home opener at the old stadium. They'd do the same for us, right?

The Jays and Yanks tee it off at 7:05 tonight. Give the Jays the advantage with Burnett pitching against 39 year old Mike Mussina. Also, there's a very good chance Matt Stairs will play today.

Around the rest of the majors, there's a full slate of games starting with Kansas City and Detroit at 1:05. Good news for those of us with and no class after 11!

The biggest news yesterday was Pedro's hamstring strain that knocked him out of his first start after 3 1/3 innings. The extent of the injury isn't known yet, but it sure doesn't bode well for the Mets and their lack of starting pitching depth. They did win 88 games despite getting only 28 innings from Pedro last year, and they've replaced Glavine's 200 innings of 96 ERA+ with the best pitcher in baseball, so Mets fans shouldn't be jumping off the bandwagon just yet.
