HAPPY OPENING DAY!
Baseball is finally back in the Bay Area and we couldn’t be more excited for Giants and A's baseball.
Bruce Bochy and Bob Melvin's squads have *very* different expectations for the upcoming season.
The A’s are coming off one of their best seasons in recent history with 97 wins. After an early exit in the Wild Card game last season, there are high hopes for this team to make a deep postseason run in 2019.
The Giants, on the other hand, are in a bit of a different situation. Coming off a 73-win season, expectations aren't high for the team that has already won three World Series Championships this decade. This team doesn’t look like it has in the past, but you never know with the Giants -- especially in Bochy's last season.
If you missed Opening Day, or if you weren’t connected on social media, or you just LOVE baseball ... we got you.
Here’s a quick rundown of what Bay Area Opening Day looked like on Twitter.
Who's excited for Opening Day?
Not the best stat for the Giants.
The Giants have a different Opening Day left fielder for the 13th consecutive season. That's pretty amazing.— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) March 28, 2019
Everything's going to be A-okay this season as long as these two beautiful human beings are describing what's happening. pic.twitter.com/jnul1yTYlE— LOLKNBR (@LOLKNBR) March 28, 2019
MC Hammer’s pumped.
Manny Machado got a standing ovation before his first at-bat with the Padres ... and then Bumgarner struck him out on three pitches.— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) March 28, 2019
Another day, another Khrush Bomb.
Literally KHRUSHED 😯 pic.twitter.com/77g5SbnaLq— A's on NBCS (@NBCSAthletics) March 28, 2019
First W of the season.
Unfortunately, something we’ve seen way too often.
Madison Bumgarner on Opening Day: 7 innings, 2 earned runs, 9 strikeouts. Zero runs of support.— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) March 28, 2019
There are still 161 more games ...
The Giants lost 2-0. Madison Bumgarner looked like the old Madison Bumgarner. The lineup looked like the lineup of 2017 and 2018.— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) March 28, 2019
Here's to a great 2019 season!
