Dodgers "We have nothing to announce" (Opening Day)


So I'm getting verbally attacked over the Opening Day news. Just trust me. Or like the great Jose Lima says "You better believe it". :)

Okay, there seems to be some confusion from readers over my previous post. {linked here}

There is no Monday game! The Thursday game replaces the Monday game. And yes, Opening Day is a night game (5pm) which in reality should be called "Opening Night".

Monday game was "Snuggie Night". But since there is no Monday game, it will be moved to another date.

I hope this clears the confusion. One more time, the updated schedule (Which no one has confirmed but I believe the source)

Thursday    March 31 5pm @ Dodger Stadium vs Giants  ESPN
Friday        April 1      7pm @ Dodger Stadium vs Giants  Prime Ticket
Saturday     April 2     1pm @ Dodger Stadium vs Giants  Fox 11
Sunday       April 3      5pm @ Dodger Stadium vs Giants  ESPN (But I've been told it's ESPN 2)

The March 31 game will most likely be the only game in Baseball. ESPN will air it as a special "Baseball Opening Night Game".

Could I be wrong with all this? Who knows, I hope not. I dislike getting attacked. :)

By the way, I feel bad for long time reader Michael who is flying on March 31 from New York thinking Opening Day is April 1.

Sorry Mike, I hope you can change your flight tickets. But don't do it until the Dodgers announce it!

Update - Just in while writing this post -

From a Dodgers spokesperson -

Roberto,

As for the rumors of an Opening Day change, at this point, there's nothing I can tell you, as we have nothing to announce.

Oh boy.

"Vin Scully Is My Homeboy" better be right.

Right? :)

One thing is for sure, Clayton Kershaw vs Tim Lincecum!
