Some choice items from around the interwebs…

–Mark Sheldon wants to know how many of you have written off the season already. Not me.

–Dusty Baker’s explanation for the poor defense in the outfield yesterday (Darnell McDonald, we’re looking at you):

“Guys are learning each other, they blooped some in there, some guys are learning the field.”

I’m sure it had nothing to do with the guys Dusty chose to start.

–Votto and Bruce are okay with their leadership roles. That’s funny; I’m okay with that, too.

–Bronson Arroyo is going to pitch on Thursday, after all. So now we’re back where we started:

– Wednesday, 7:10 vs. Mets – Edinson Volquez
– Thursday, 12:35 vs. Mets – Arroyo
– Friday, 7:10 vs. Pirates – Johnny Cueto
– Saturday, 1:10 vs. Pirates – Micah Owings
– Sunday, 1:10 vs. Pirates – Aaron Harang

–Here are CSG’s thoughts on Opening Day, good and bad.

–Doug continues to post a bunch of good videos from his trip to the Futures Game in Dayton.

–The Enquirer has a decent “audio slideshow,” featuring pics of the Findlay’s Market Parade, and Opening Day.

Adam Dunn: 2-4, HR, 2B, 4 RBI. Ken Griffey, Jr.: 1-3, HR. Junior’s homer ties another former Red, Frank Robinson, for the record for most Opening Day homers.
