Morning Dump — Opening Day Edition

Today is the best day of the year. It’s like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and my birthday all rolled into one. After an off-season of anticipation, the Rox will finally take the field again. Make sure to check back shortly for Rox Pile’s series preview.

Party time.

The Rockies are coming off the best spring training they’ve ever had, and are hoping that it will carry over into a hot start. They come into the 2011 season fresh and hungry. One thing is for certain, this is going to be a fun year.

CarGo, Tulo, and Ubaldo can play a little ball.


Even Tulo gets nervous.

Mark Kiszla thinks this season will come down to the success of role players like Ty Wigginton, Todd Helton, and Ian Stewart. I’ll add Dexter Fowler and Seth Smith to that group.

For the most part, Ubaldo toyed with hitters this spring. He is ready to go today.

Notgraphs continues to do great things. Pete Incaviglia and Pork Chop:

Finally, let’s finish up the Dump with a little News Radio. The great Bill McNeil (Phil Hartman) has some Opening Day radio pitches for us.
