It's the most wonderful time of the year! The grass is green, the sky is blue, the smells and sounds of the ballpark fill the air. I have a wonderfully romantic notion when it comes to baseball, if you couldn't tell.

Yesterday was the official start to the season, with MLB featuring a triple-header of games. My Yankees had a bad day in Tampa, losing to the Rays. The Diamondbacks had a comeback win against the Giants, and the Cardinals beat the defending champion Chicago Cubs.

Today the rest of the league gets to start their season!

The Mets host the Atlanta Braves at 1pm. All-Star Julio Teheran will pitch for the Braves, and Noah Syndergaard take the hill for the Mets. You can watch the game on SNY or on ESPN as part of ESPN's huge Opening Day Marathon.
