It was a long, hard day at Citizens Bank Park yesterday; and it was only the first of 81. Kyle Kendrick took the mound and had one of those days that he is more known for than the days when he doesn't give up multiple home runs to a single slugger.
This time, the PED-scandal poster boy was Ryan Braun, not Jason Giambi, like before. Braun battered Kendrick twice, then went after one of his successors for another home run that threw the last handful of dirt on the Phillies' Opening Day grave.
And through it all, she danced. Oh, how she danced.
