Opening Day has a way of magnifying everything. For some reason, after today's win I feel like Dunn is going to hit 60, Harang is going to win 25, and Griffey is going to play 162. It's a beautiful thing, this small sample size time of the season.
That said, I did feel REALLY good about what I saw of Alex Gonzalez today. That stab up the middle where he almost dove to beat the runner to second was pretty amazing even though it didn't result in an out. It was also quite nice to see his self-assured throws across the diamond to Hatteberg. He seems to be as-advertised, and I think he could make a big difference for our defense this year.
