SUPER SPECIAL OPENING DAY BASEBALL ROUNDUP

Because we love Opening Day …

  • SFist has a nifty little collection of experts’ picks from around the web. We’ll summarize the summary: the A’s in the top two and the Giants should finish last. [SFist]
  • Barry Bonds, looking suspiciously positive. [SFGate]
  • Those little orange Croix de Candlestick pins from the past are starting to make some non-Bay Area people wonder what they were all about. [Uni Watch]
  • According to Chris Hatt, MLB writer, the Giants are built to win now. Actually Chris, the Giants are built to win in 1999. Klesko was the man that year. [sfgiants]
  • Lance Niekro won the competition for the final roster spot. Mark Sweeeney will start the season on the DL and Jason Ellison got traded to Seattle. So much for the Jason Ellison era. [sfgiants]
  • Travis Buck is the Cinderella story of the A’s spring training. He made the team and is set to start in right field tonight. [ESPN]
  • Taking the mound against Oakland tonight will be Felix Hernandez, the phenom who was supposed to break out last year. This year he will become the youngest Opening Day starter since Doc Gooden. [ESPN]
  • Barry Zito, gone but not forgotten. [Inside Bay Area]
