There were no notes. There were no stats or sabermetrics. There was no script. None of that seemed right on a day that is supposed to be joyous and hopeful and is anything but that. On this edition of The Bettor’s Box, host Adam Burke just talked unfiltered and off-the-cuff about how today is supposed to be Opening Day and it is not.

Is it selfish to be sad that today is not Opening Day? According to host Adam Burke, not at all. It’s just one part of the greater sadness that we are experiencing around the world. Adam had no script and no notes for today’s show, but he had some thoughts and just talked on today’s program. Baseball has given a lot to those of us that follow it in a variety of different ways and that was a key theme on today’s segment.
A normal segment will be back on Monday with more stats and sabermetrics and breakdowns, but it just didn’t seem right today.
Join us on Monday for a new edition of The Bettor’s Box, our MLB betting podcast.
