Was hoping to wake up to news of an exciting trade of some sort. Instread...sub-10 degree temps greet me. Fantastic. But, being a season plan holder, I do get to buy Opening Day tickets today at 10 am. So that's exciting! Who do you think starts Opening Day @ OPACY this year? Remember that the O's season starts on the road in Tampa. I'll say Hammel-Chen-Tillman start the three games in Tampa. My guess, then, is that Miguel Gonzalez will get the OPACY Opening Day nod. A well deserved honor for the young hurler after his late season, high pressure performances last year.
So...what've we got on the docket for the day? Have a gander at some links, why don'tcha!

I, for one, do so hope the national media types continue to dismiss the O's chances in 2013 out of hand. Give the Birds a chip on their feather; an 'us-against-the-world' belief to galvanize them.
