Major League Baseball is back, four days after the first offical game of the 2008 season was played.
Don’t have much to say about this other than it’s nice to see that ESPN and MLB, unlike some other leagues and networks, had the foresight to not schedule this at the same time of today’s NCAA Tournament games. Nice work, guys. Or maybe we should be thanking CBS. I don’t know, but, either way, it works.
Braves vs Nationals tonight at 8:00 on ESPN. Won’t be the first official game of the season of course, the Red Sox and A’s had that honor earlier in the week over in Japan, but it will be the first on American soil. Play ball (and go Braves…)!
