Happy AFL Opening Day.

I will be posting notable performances as they occur throughout the AFL season in this thread, and encourage others to do the same.

Today's starters include Jameson Taillon, Alex Meyer and Jason Adam.

I love the timing of some of the AFL games as they happen during my work-day and help the time go faster.

I'm guessing a Grand Slam for Mitch Haniger brightened up your day?

Also:

Matt Skole HR (1)
Cheslor Cuthbert HR (1)

Micah Johnson 3 SB (3)

Kept messing with Micah when he would return to dugout

Told him I expect 30 SBs this spring

He winked as he went out to field after stealing 2nd and 3rd

I left after 5th and headed over to AZ Sportscards on 101st and Camelback and bought some singles and box of Topps Chrome


Meyer gave up some runs but racked up Ks

Buxton was 0-3
Goodwin got one a couple times but picked off 1st
Bryant flew out to RF
Soler was 0-3

I was only one behind 1st base dugout

Almora and Bryant are a combined 4-4 with a 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBI, and 3 R so far today, and it's still in the 3rd inning.

In related news, Michael Lorenzen got SHELLED

Soler just hit a 3-run double - nice! Almora 3-3 (HR, 2b, 1b) today so far. 9 of 10 runs scored from Cubs bats. Gotta like that as a Cubs fan!

Almora is killing it! Glad to see Soler get in on the action too.
