Well I actually thought the Nats home opener was pretty exciting because of the new ballpark. And then the game turned out to be excellent and ended with a great moment. Maybe it's just because I am an NL East fan but I thought it was a pretty big deal.
As for most interesting Opening Day games, I think most people are just going to favor their home team. Nothing is more exciting to me than the Mets and Marlins. Obviously not as exciting to everyone else but maybe somewhat just due to Santana's first NL game.
I do agree the Cubs and Brewers is a good match-up although I think it should have been saved a bit rather than using it as the opening series. I will be watching this one until the Mets game starts. I just can't bring myself to watch the ESPN broadcast. I've already had my fill of hearing about Yankees stadium.
And the Houston v. SD game due to the pitching match-up.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
