Presenting a sample of writing from Opening Days gone by.

On a day of new beginnings, let's welcome one more: The Wayback Blog. From time to time, we'll be using this platform to highlight articles in our archives that might not merit the full reprint treatment in The BP Wayback Machine, but that still deserve to see the light of day. With Opening Day upon us, I thought it might make sense to bring together some of our work devoted to past Opening Days as a reminder of the feelings, reactions, and analyses that the occasion has prompted over the past several years. To some extent, this is the Joe Sheehan show, since Joe has long been both a tireless crusader against the tyranny of small sample size and a man who enjoys his Opening Days, but I managed to dig up some Opening Day-related articles by other authors, as well as a few staff roundtables that might be fun to revisit with the benefit of hindsight.

All of these articles have been unlocked, so even if you're not (yet!) a subscriber, you're free to enjoy them in their entirety.
