Best pitching matchup of the day. Justin Verlander, last year's 3rd place Al Cy Young vote getter takes on reigning AL Cy Winner, and the game's most universally liked player Zack Greinke. Other excitement in Kansas City comes from the debuts of Rick Ankiel, Scott Podsednik and Jason Kendall. The Royals are bringing in more people on the downside of their career than Celebrity Apprentice.

The Tigers are your WoW pick to win the AL Central. Rob also picked Jim Leyland to die and subsequently win manager of the year. Bold. Your move, Sports Illustrated. Whatever happens today, the AL Central is going to be one close race and if the Tigers are gonna make my prediction come true, a good start will be essential. No one wants to play 163 games again. What do you think, Asshole Jim?

"I think we have a competitive club," said Leyland. "Are we going to win anything? I don't know."

Keep smilin', kid.

I'm in three fantasy leagues and I've never heard of Austin Jackson. If there's a bigger condemnation of my research skills, I have yet to see it.

Big Z has a 162 ERA right now

I know I'm going to Guy Clark Myself, but I will try to re-post this anyway:

That YYYEEEEAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH you heard off in the distance was Matt-T.

Jayson Heyward just went yard in his first major league at-bat, putting the Braves on top 6-3 in the bottom of the first.

POTENTIAL SHRIMP IN TEXAS!!!

I'd like to point out that Zambrano is available for trade in the WoW league. Contact me asap, while the gettin's good. THAT 7 WHIP WON'T LAST FOREVER.

/might last forever

Stupid Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Swung at a 2-2 curveball and drove it into center for the GWRBI.

Shrimp Saltalamacchia on Opening Day would have been a delicious amuse bouche.
