Podcast: Opening day bonanza

By Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

In this episode of the podcast, Chris and Jack discuss last night's game, and some of the early action from opening day.

  • From the beginning: Opening day is here. We start with Elvis Andrus' new contract. Is he worth it?
  • 5:40: Game analysis begins with Yankees/Red Sox: Should we be concerned about CC Sabathia after one start? Should we feel better about Jon Lester and Jacoby Ellsbury?
  • 10:22: Nationals/Marlins: How great was Bryce Harper? Are we upset that Stephen Strasburg was pulled after just 80 pitches?
  • 16:00: Brewers/Rockies: Jack talks about the performances of Yovani Gallardo and Jhoulys Chacin, and breaks down what he saw from two relievers.
  • 23:30: Cubs/Pirates: Jeff Samardzija and Anthony Rizzo gave the Cubs something to be optimistic about. Do we already have a closer controversy?
  • 29:00: Mets/Padres: Is Edinson Volquez useful on the road? Can Yonder Alonso hit for more power?
  • 34:00: We take a brief look at some of the afternoon games.
  • 37:20: A look back at Astros/Rangers. Will Bo Porter continue to use pitching tandems? Should we buy Justin Maxwell as a legitimate player?
