Opening Day: Sushi vs Hot Dogs
Saturday, March 29, 2008
In addition to my usual Yankees Chick posts, I have also begun writing regularly for AOL's FanHouse blog on all things AL East. I will post the beginnings of those articles here on YC, and then you'll have to click the link to jump on over to FH to read the rest... stick with me here, amigos!

The regular season of baseball will open in the U.S. on Sunday, as the Braves take on the Nationals in their new stadium. As you probably know, the season actually started in Japan for the third time in MLB's history (the Mets and Cubs went in 2000 and the Yanks and Rays in 2004), and brought with it the usual assortment of complaints from players and fans. While there doesn't seem to be as much enthusiasm for the idea as there are complaints, like most anything, there are pros and cons to starting the season 5,500 miles from home.

Arguments FOR:
  • It provides a great platform to show another country the American style of baseball. It showcases the game and makes another part of the world aware of the MLB, its teams, and its stars. Great for business.
  • The players are treated like royalty. I'm sure the guys have a blast over there, getting squired about the town and swarmed by adoring fans.
  • They are compensated very well -- $40,000 per day.
Read the arguments AGAINST after the jump!
