Are you watching baseball today?

New, comments

Ok, so the O's aren't playing. But there are thirteen other baseball games being played today. Extra innings is free this week and ESPN/ESPN2 is airing five baseball games, so if you want baseball, you're covered. Today's schedule:

Phillies @ Nationals, 1:05 p.m. 
Roy Halladay starts for the Phillies, Barack Obama for the Nationals

Marlins @ Mets, 1:10 p.m. 
It's the beginning of what is sure to be heck of a season for the Mets. They are awful. 

Cardinals @ Reds, 1:10 p.m.
They have a parade! Lucky.

Dodgers @ Pirates, 1:35 p.m.
Quick! Name five Pirates! Bet you can't do it. 

Blue Jays @ Rangers, 2:05 p.m.
The only AL East team playing today. It's just weird!

Indians @ White Sox, 2:05 p.m
Mark Buehrle vs Jake Westbrook, which happens to be the same OD match up as in 2005. 

Rockies @ Brewers, 2:10 p.m.
Racing sausages!

Cubs @ Braves, 4:10 p.m.
Bobby Cox's last Opening Day

Tigers @ Royals, 4:10 p.m.
Greinke vs. Verlander

Padres @ Diamondbacks, 5:10 p.m.
I'm prepared to declare this the game I care least about.

Giants @ Astros, 7:05 p.m.
Huff Daddy puts on a different orange and black uniform. He did used to play for the Astros, so I'm predicting he hits a couple grand slams.

Twins @ Angels, 10:05 p.m.
Who is the Angels #1 pitcher these days? The Weave?

Mariners @ Athletics, 10:05 p.m.
Ben Sheets hopes the regular season is kinder to him than ST. 

So who you watching? Or will you just stick with basketball?
