An Opening Day win has a way of helping to gloss over some of the things that normally we'd be harping on in this space. To wit:
- Anthony Rendon getting picked off immediately prior to a Bryce Harper home run.
- Jayson Werth going 0 for 4 with five stranded runners and getting thrown out on a bad send, safe only due to lack of competence.
- Ben Revere coming up lame in the very first game.
- The bullpen follies.
