My takeaways from game #1 : • They look like they could be a fun team to watch this season • Julio still the tough guy competitor he always is • 8 Ks between Max and Mookie alone is just nuts...bad nuts • The overall time of the game is so much better, and people who are 100 years old like me may actually be able to see a complete night game from LA without falling out • Probably unnoticed, which is as they say, a good thing, was the umpire calling the game. It was well done. I only remember two or three pitches outside the box called a strike, and they were close, and one definite strike a ball...not bad at all compared to the garbage level of the last few seasons. • The bottom half of the lineup contributed well offensively, as I think everybody thought O would only come from the top. Not with Betts and Muncy whiffing machines.
