    Game Update 1:

    Jimmy Rollins gets the season off the right way with a double. Victorino bunts him over to third, then Utley sac flies him — short of homering. 1-0 Phils!

    Brett Myers throws 1-2-3 first inning of lines and pops.

    Feliz should bat 7th or even 8th, not 6th…

    Yeah, for those not watching (why?), Feliz double played one, erasing Burrell on first, who would’ve at least reached third on Jayson Werth’s double.

    Feliz should hit 8th behind the Platoon and Ruiz.

    I can’t watch. I live in California and the Phils aren’t on tv. Gotta love XM radio though!

    Cali? Paul, you’re complaining? I’m in Ireland. I’m relying on that real-time update thing on ESPN.

    So I can’t see what’s going on, but I get the sense that:

    1.) Myers appears to have had one of his old-school meltdowns. I’d hoped he had matured beyond that.

    2.) When the bullpen comes in, cue the clown music (though Chad Durbin just had a nice inning).

    Why is JC Romero not the closer? When Flash is off, it’s like batting practice.
