The only reason not to do this is the proverbial "we've always done it on a Monday".
I would love a Friday start to the season. Take Friday off and kick off your weekend early. I don't think Saturday has to be a night game. I've always hated the Tuesday off day after the opener. Let's hope this eliminates that nonsense. How many Openers have been postponed in this town? This will greatly enhance attendance for the 2nd and 3rd games.
Who knows, maybe the Reds could go back to being the first game again...
MLB should have done this a long time ago
