And So It Begins...

One game, one blown opportunity. The Phillies dreadful pitching, specifically the bullpen, has already lost a game. 0-1. Brett Myers was rather unspectacular as well, surrendering 4 runs (3 earned) and walking and hitting two. The offense was decent, scoring 6 runs. Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins each had a home run. But, like the pitching, the defense was awful. Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Ruiz each had an error. Overall a bad opening day for a team hoping to win 100 games according to Jimmy Rollins and challenge for the World Series. One down 161 to go. It's a long season but hopefully this isn't an omen of things to come. What better way to get the season back on track than sending Cole Hamels to the mound?
