Stuff I Felt Like Mentioning On The Day After The Dodgers' Home Opening
- The Angels proceeded to lose two of their first three games, so Monday's 5-1 win over the Twins came as a refreshing change. It did not go unnoticed that last year, the Angels won the first game of the opening series against the Royals and then lost the rest.
- Fox and MLB have filed objections to the Dodgers sale, mainly stemming from questions of whether Time Warner is involved in the sale. Chad Moriyama has a good rebuttal for why these concerns are not of particular interest to Dodger fans (though I tend to think this is an issue for Guggenheim's insureds).
- Speaking of the Dodgers, they won beat the Pirates 2-1 on the strength of an eighth-inning solo homer by Andre Ethier. Jon on opening day, the worst of which was a day without Vin Scully, who called in sick and will miss the whole series.
- The Padres are back up for sale. I was sure the new TV deal would keep them in Moores' hands. but I wonder if this isn't a sort of shot across the bow for the Dodgers sale: the TV deal isn't really as rich as it looks, and Moores' losses are bigger than imagined.
