It's a beautiful day in St. Louis, though I suspect even if it were pelting meteorites it would be a gorgeous day for baseball. Tonight the Mets machine gets rolling once again and the action here gets cranked up and will be rolling until October.
What's out? Predictions. Position battles. Pomp. Circumstance.
What's in? Real games. Real standings. Fantasy leagues. Reality leagues. Stat tracking. Ice blended mocha drinks. David Schwimmer.
In just two short hours the Mets will watch the unveiling of the Cardinals' World Champion banner, last offseason's dramatic loss still burning the backs of their throats like a post-chili dinner vurp. Despite some waffling to the contrary, Willie Randolph will hand in the following tried-and-true lineup card tonight:
- Jose Reyes
- Paul Lo Duca
- Carlos Beltran
- Carlos Delgado
- David Wright
- Moises Alou
- Shawn Green
- Jose Valentin
- Tom Glavine
It all starts now. Let the games begin!
