I love Opening Day. However, my wife and I are having our second baby tomorrow, so today will be the first time I’ve missed attending Opening Day in 16 years. Thankfully, MetsBlog’s Michael Baron will be out at Citi Field live blogging photos for the blog; and I’ll be relaying news, notes and quotes from SNY’s on-air caravan of coverage, which starts at 11:30 am, featuring a variety of guests from Bobby Valentine to Edgardo Alfonzo to John Franco. I can’t wait to get started…
