Garrett Jones, my massive sleeper for the day that I had in all lineups, went hitless, and Jake Arrieta, who I chose over Matt Harvey...

Toronto Blue Jays: opening day observations

The Toronto Blue Jays got their season off on the right foot, beating the New York Yankees handily 6-1 earlier today. There were a number of notable occurrences from the game: Drew Hutchison dazzled in his first season opener, with a line of 6.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, and 3 SO.

The Latest R.A. Dickey Experiment
