Obligatory Opening Day Post

Doesn’t it feel like eons since Tulo fouled out to end the ALCS? 

Opening Day is a nice combination of excitement and uncertainty. All the teams are at the same starting point; and despite all the number crunching and prognosticating, nothing is 100% guaranteed. 

As the Blue Jays begin thier 41st season in Baltimore this afternoon, here are some friendly reminders. Most of them will be ignored, but – what the hell – I feel like wearing rose coloured glasses today. 

  • The regular season is a marathon, not a sprint.
  • The regular season is full of peaks and valleys.
  • “Panic buttons” are useless; so is jumping to conclusions.
  • Ryan Goins is the 25th player on the 25-man roster.
  • Justin Smaok deserves a fair shot. He’s not trying to go 0-for-4 on purpose. In other words, let things breathe. 
  • Everyone is entitled to an opinion, regardless of whether you agree or not.
  • Constructive criticism is far greater than villianization. 
  • Trolls just want to get a rise out of you; and I don’t mean #LetsRise 😉
  • Most importantly, savour every pitch, every at-bat and every moment. Sometimes, we fixate so much on stats/standings and miss the beauty of sitting inside Skydome on a goregous Friday night in July.

Enjoy today’s game and the remaining 161.
