Happy Opening Felix Day
Well, it’s finally here. This time it counts, or do we have to wait until July to say that?
In about eight and a half hours, Felix Hernandez will throw a first pitch fastball to open the 2007 season, and what is likely the most pivotal season in the franchises history will begin. We’ve written our fair share of analysis and opinions about how the offseason went and what we expect this year to look like, but as of today, only the results on the field matter.
Today, we have hope. King Felix takes the hill for the last time before he turns 21 and makes the first of what is hopefully a decade or two of opening day starts at Safeco Field. Win today and the team will take possession of first place.
Huzzah for opening day. Go M’s.
