There aren’t going to be any rainouts, snowouts or weather issues of any kind for the Dodgers’ season opener today. It is an absolutely beautiful afternoon here in San Diego. There isn’t a cloud in sight, the sky is a perfect shade of blue, the field at Petco Park looks like it hasn’t been played on in six months (they DID have a game here Friday night against the Angels), the bunting is in place arond the ballpark and this is exactly what opening day SHOULD be. It’s four hours to game time, and the gates haven’t opened yet. There also isn’t any news yet. We know that Mientkiewicz, Belisario and Ohman will be added to the 40-man roster, but we just don’t know how. One spot was cleared when Danny Ardoin was outrighted. Another will be cleared when Claudio Vargas goes on the 60-day DL. Not sure where the other one is coming from. Should find out soon though, so keep checking back as the day goes on. Summer vacation is over. School is back in session.
