Sunday Night Baseball

The Phillies are opening the 2009 season with a Sunday night home game against the Braves. Last season the Braves opened on the road on Sunday night too, losing one to the Nats. That kicked off a 90-loss season for them that, no matter what happened on a daily basis, always felt like that first disappointing game.

I don't believe in signs, portents, or omens, so I have no idea why this is bothering me this morning, but it is.

Hmmm, let's see:

* Opening on the road (check)
* Opening against a divisional beast (check)
* Opening against the World Series Champs (check)
* Facing the WS MVP/starting pitcher (check)
* Having to sit thru a ring ceremony/banner raising (check)

Yeah, I can see how that'd put you in a foul mood.
