Opening Day Liveblog: Braves at Phillies

Click here to view it. Coverage starts at 8 Eastern … a.k.a. RIGHT NOW.

IT IS OPENING NIGHT AND I AM SO FRIGGIN’ PUMPED, MAN.

Your starting pitchers will be:

  • For the Phillies, Brett Myers. He’s making his 3rd consecutive opening day start and is 4-8 with a 4.60 ERA in his career against the Braves.

  • For the Braves, Derek Lowe. I don’t know about his Opening Day numbers, but I do know that he’s 4-1 with a 3.02 ERA in his career against the Phillies.

Chase Utley doesn’t care what you think, he’s healthy and he’ll be playing today. Jayson Werth will also be playing — he’s the only Phillie or Brave on my Europa Eccentrics.

Liveblog: WBC Game A4, Japan vs. Korea

Click here to view the liveblog, which will start at approximately 5 AM Eastern/2 AM Pacific. The unnecessarily complicated Daisuke Matsuzaka will be pitching for Japan, and that’s pretty much all I know in advance. I’ll use this as an excuse to post a few pictures of Yu Darvish.

Darvish adjusts his hat in the outfield. Something about this picture seems hilarious to me — or maybe its just 12:30 in the morning. Yeah, thats probably it.

Shameless Self-Promotion

You may have noticed the little box in our sidebar, below our wonderfully awesome tag cloud and above our absurdly technical copyright manifesto, that says “we’re on twitter!”, has an RSS logo, and displays a little sentence or two (frequently one mentioning Ollie Perez, but that’s hardly the point). This is our feed from Twitter, where I (Crane) microblog about stuff that’s usually baseball-related. Some of my recent tweets have touched on such diverse topics as software, Formula 1 merchandise, Roy Halladay’s cooking habits, and the seatbelts on old Buicks.

Interested yet? You can subscribe by clicking here, or you can take a look at my recent updates by clicking here.

We’re also on Tumblr, which can be found here. It’s also in our sidebar – we’re just ‘testing our tumblr feed’, as you can see, because we aren’t sure how it handles images and whatnot. Email me if you know how to change the background picture on a Tumblr theme.

We also run occasional liveblogs/liveglogs, whatever you want to call it — you probably didn’t notice, but I stayed up until 5 this morning haphazardly liveblogging the WBC Game 1: China vs Japan — through the lovely CoverItLive.com, which is so user-friendly that a sleep-deprived college student can successfuly set up liveblogs.

This wonderful ad appeared thrice (did I really just say that?) over the course of the game. Sorry about the link-through; I wasn’t sure if it would embed properly.

I may or may not have the courage to grab a Mountain Dew and liveblog tomorrow morning, or tonight, or whatever you want to call it (my circadian rhythm’s beat up pretty bad), but if I do, will you try to follow along? Please? C’mon, guys. I didn’t get a single liveblog reader, although the post containing the link got a couple hits.
