Well my fellow SSS "friends". I figured I'd give you a Hoytsstash summary of his trip to "Opening Day". It was about 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky...walked in the front gate about 1pm for a 1:05pm start. Ordered a tall $8.00 Fat Tire off the tap a bag of $4.00 Spitz seeds. Girl used a calculator to figure the change. Probably the reason Arizona is one of the lower ranked public school funded states in the country. I should have known something was amiss. 1st inning started promising, then, push-bunt, base-hit, then F9, F9 and F8 I think.
At any rate, as I was working on a good sun-burn I observed the following -- Dotel looked real bad, both in the bullpen and on the mound. AJ had a great day, 2 for 3 I think. Flowers looked like a JV High School bullpen catcher both on offense and defense -- Struck out looking with two strikes and a runner in scoring position and 2 past balls, one resulting in a run when the "game" was tight. I guess his NBA tattoo didn't help today. Great defensive plays by both Dye running into the wall in the second and Fields a great pick in the same inning. Richards looked good.
At any rate, you guys should get out here. Good sun burn weather, cold beer if you drink it fast enough, and Ozzie being Ozzie outside the dugout. Cuz I know you guys give a shit.
