Thoughts from the park:
Great pitching - the umps made livo strike out Heyworth 3 times on 5 strikes. Livo got hung out to dry by Riggleman as well. Riggleman needs to be fired, he's Acta 2.0.
The defense was just sparkling. What a joy! LaRoche is a gem.
Jayson Werth put on a show. Gotta love that guy! Espinosa had himself a game too. You just know every time he's involved something exciting will happen.
Ankiel looked really good in CF, not so good at the place.
Demote Desmond, I'm not even kidding. He looks so incredibly overmatched in all aspects of the game.
The umps really did suck. Zim went BALLISTIC after he struck out. He threw everything including his gum.
Love this lineup except for Desmond. I think you put Espinosa at short and bring up a 2B or even let Bixler keep the position warm for a while, but Desmond adds nothing to the team.
Coffey had an absolutely dominating inning. I guess that's why these games count. You had to be watching to see him sprint in, they made no mention of it.
Clippard was just plain silly. His changeup was incredible. Also, Livo's 60mph Bugs Bunny curve to Heyworth was a beauty.
Losing 2-0 with wonderful defense and good pitching sure beats last year's Opening Day.
