  Major League Baseball’s Opening Week started while we were on spring break. All of baseball got to experience the joy of Opening Day as the season got off to a great start. All of your favorite teams were in action starting on March 28th, and baseball fans were ready as this has been a really long offseason.

 

  All of baseball was ready to get started last Thursday as Opening Day was upon us. Teams like the new and improved Phillies and Padres all got going with their new superstars. If you guys have not heard, the Phillies signed Bryce Harper in the offseason and the Padres signed Manny Machado. Both players got unbelievable contracts, both over 300 million dollars. Bryce Harper seems to be performing well while Manny Machado is not; Bryce Harper is already showing off in his new uniform and living up to his contract.

 

  Despite the hype around the opening week of baseball, some teams that were expected to do well this year are starting off poorly. The Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies have gotten off to really poor offensive starts, as well as having trouble with their pitching rotation. The Cubs have had no problems producing on offense, but the bullpen has been really disappointing. Despite these teams struggling, it will be fun to see how they react to this poor start as well as how they do overall this season.

 

  This season is starting off great with all of baseball’s favorite stars living up to what they can do. We will have to see if the teams that have started off well continue their success and whether or not these struggling teams can bounce back from a tough start.
