Throwing it Around

We’re officially on day three of the MLB Regular season. We already can’t get home and wait to watch all the action tonight, and that’s how it usually goes with the first few days of the season. The Reds play on Opening Day Monday, then take Tuesday off. And at this point in the season, we’ll watch anybody. Even Cleveland appeals to us for a minute. By May or June, teams like Cleveland won’t have us looking at the clock all day long. But for now, we can’t wait.
