Opening Day

Hard Hat Area

The weather in Chicago (wet, windy, temps in the 30s--sounds about right) will prevent the White Sox from kicking off their season today, but nonetheless, party on. I'll be looking forward to King Felix vs. Francisco Liriano tonight instead.

A couple of quick baseball items:

-- Good read from Joe Posnanski on Zach Greinke here.

-- Meet Stephen Strasburg, the likely number one pick in this year's draft. His fastball touches triple digits, and if his numbers are any indication (94 Ks in 48.3 IP; 17.5 K/9), he is freakishly talented. His "adviser"/soon-to-be-agent (I'll give you one guess who) is looking for $50 million.
