A Little MMA Action at the Old Ball Yard.

41ADdrb6o-L._SY300_A tip of the hat to the MMA boys of C-Town:  Masterson-Morgan-Axford. I managed to stay awake until the final pitch of the last inning and it was spectacular.

Masterson was exactly who we thought he was.  [Sidenote to Shapiro: let’s hold off on Masterson’s contract and watch him earn a cool mill on the open market for every game he wins in 2014]

Morgan was happy to be in the game and made the most of it.  I suspect we won’t be seeing a lot of Nyjer this year, but I am grateful for his timely pop last night.

And Axford was a thing of beauty, slamming the door on the charging Athletics.

Someone once said (actually I just made this up): Opening Day is the first dress rehearsal for the post-season. All things considered, we looked pretty good out there.

1 down, 93 to go. I love my job.
