“I look up, the sky’s blue, the sun’s shining, we’re gonna have a full house. I’ll be able to smell hotdogs and hamburgers and beer. I’ll see people up in the stands congregating around one another having conversations like they haven’t seen ‘em all winter. It’s a time to play baseball. And that’s what makes it good.” -Charlie Manuel today
It’s Kyle Kendrick vs. Wade Davis in the home opener. Not much to say today besides savor it. There’s no feeling for a baseball fan like Opening Day in Philadelphia.
The Phillies are 3-6 in home openers at Citizens Bank Park.
Today’s Lineup: Revere, Rollins, Utley, Howard, Young, Brown, Nix, Kratz, KK.
4:05 start. Play ball.
