Neglected to mention I thought it was a sad commentary on major league baseball to play opening games of the season in Japan. It’s no secret the reason why, purely profit and getting product into more places, at whatever the cost. It was even more ridiculous the current World Series champion Boston Red Sox had to go. If you are a fan of the Red Sox, the game started at just after 6:00 AM, meaning for most, they had to choose between work or watching their beloved team. Stupid is the only word that works.
Can you imagine the opening of the NFL season being in some foreign land with an weekday AM start time for the Giants this upcoming fall.
