Wait a minute. Wasn’t last week Opening Day? The A’s and Mariners played the first regular season games in Japan so that must be it, right?
No? You mean today is Opening Day? The one-game series in Miami between the Marlins and Cardinals? I’m confused.
So what does that make Friday? Most teams are playing that day. That’s Opening Day?
I know MLB is really doing its best to expand and try to make their games primetime or whatever, but Opening Day is a tradition in baseball and it should remain as simple as possible. Opening Day (not Opening Weekend, or Opening Night) to me should be on a Monday day game for all teams.
I know TV ratings and revenue play into it, but I really don’t like how different teams are opening their season at different dates and in different countries. Can we get it right?
