Opening Day: Features from the Herald

Opening Day is finally upon us. Sure, it's spread out over three days across the country, but that's definitely nothing to complain about. There's baseball that counts once again. Yesterday marked the official start of the season. Although the year kicked off with a night game in cold weather (which all around just seems wrong, although because of the opponents, I guess it all makes sense), the results do count though and 2005 is off and running. If nothing else, the result indicated that normalcy has returned to the game.

The Marlins have another day to rest though. And that's probably a good thing as it gives Juan Pierre an extra day (although he reportedly looked quite good in yesterday's exhibition).

In case you didn't see yesterday's Miami Herald in print, they ran their baseball preview and many of the articles are still available online. Check them out before they go behind the passworded wall. Here are some you might find interesting:
