Game 1: 1 run (L, 4-1)
Game 2: 0 runs (L, 4-0)
One run in two games prorates to… 81 runs over 162 games. Agh! Time to panic!
Well, not really. If you’re in panic mode, here are some therapeutic guides to relieving that early-season tension:
- Eric Seidman: My Small Sample Size Plea
- R.J. Anderson: Sabathia Does Not Throw No Hitter; Yankees Season Over
- Brian Joseph: Opening Day… We’ll Never Learn
Don’t fret. Shane Victorino will eventually get a hit. Ryan Howard will hit a home run. Chase Utley will make an outstanding defensive play. Phillies starters will stop allowing one home run in the first inning. It will get better, I promise — stick around.
