Opening Day 2011

Good news: It has stopped snowing. Bad news: It still feels like football weather.

But I have seen worse weather on Opening Day. Anybody remember the first opener at Citizens Bank Park in 2004? Awful weather. Quick trivia questions: Who hit the first home run at the Bank? Who had the first stolen base? (No cheating.)

Here are today’s starting lineups:


  1. Michael Bourn, CF
  2. Angel Sanchez, SS
  3. Hunter Pence, RF
  4. Carlos Lee, LF
  5. Bill Hall, 2B
  6. Chris Johnson, 3B
  7. Brett Wallace, 1B
  8. Humberto Quintero, C
  9. Brett Myers, P


  1. Shane Victorino, CF
  2. Placido Polanco, 3B
  3. Jimmy Rollins, SS
  4. Ryan Howard, 1B
  5. Raul Ibanez, LF
  6. Ben Francisco, RF
  7. Carlos Ruiz, C
  8. Wilson Valdez, 2B
  9. Roy Halladay, P
