    Why did they have a one game series to open the season?

    MIAMI -- An accidental starter on opening day for the second time in ihs Cardinals career, Kyle Lohse pitched every bit like a deserving No. 1 as he drove the Cardinals to a 4-1 victory Wednesday night on opening at Marlins Park.


    Lohse (1-0) did not allow a run when he was in the game and finished with 7 1/3 strong innings during which he allowed only two hits. Lohse took a no-hitter through six innings before handing a 4-0 lead over to the bullpen.

    MIAMI • The saying goes that they don't put your spring training averages on your bubblegum cards. If they did, David Freese and Rafael Furcal would have enjoyed the gum more, and that's saying something for anybody who has had that particular chewing experience.


    Third baseman Freese, the World Series most valuable player for the Cardinals in 2011, hit .188 in spring training and Furcal, the "happy flight" guy, batted .192.

    Really glad Matheny got his first W and that is out of the way. Nice solid win. Freese picks up where he left off.

    To milk "opening day" ratings as much as possible.

    Technically, not "Opening Day" as that happened last week, but so glad the season is officially here!

    I'm just glad we didn't have a separate thread for each pitch that Kyle Lohse threw.

    A's vs Mariners in Japan was the "actual" MLB Opening Day. Or better yet, the first of three Opening Days.

    They had two of them but they weren't on TV really. Honestly I don't remember. If it wasn't for fantasy implications and the chance that Stevie could get in the game I wouldn't have known myself.

    It was on tape delay on the MLB network. If opening day starts in Japan and no one sees it did it really happen?

    They opened the new ball park for the Marlins.

    Only MLB could have 2 games in Japan in late March, a single game on a Wednesday night that David Stern shrewdly scheduled Heat/Thunder to capture more viewers, and sporadic first few days and through this Friday call it "Opening Day".
