|Comments on: Three Things We've Learned On Opening Day

From those who bet on MLB odds, to those who are playing in fantasy leagues (and a large amount of people that are doing both), Opening Day brings a number of questions. Here are a few answers to your questions that we’re willing to stand behind until the end of the season.
Justin Verlander And C.C. Sabathia Are Going To Dominate Your League
The Yankees and Tigers did battle in New York in the first game of the season, and the home team came out on top 6-3. Both aces showed why they were likely gone early in your draft, as Verlander allowed three runs on three hits over six innings, striking out eight and walking four (all runs came on a three-run homer by Mark Teixeira), while Sabathia countered with three runs on six hits over six innings with seven Ks and a pair of walks. The thing is, these two aren’t even close to their best yet.
Milwaukee Will Continue To Hit Homers
When you think of power teams, do you think of the Brewers? Well, you should as they have ranked in the top 10 in homers in the majors in each of the last four seasons, and last season they have five players with 23 homers or more, led by 32 from Prince Fielder. The Brewers have knocked out three in their first game of the season against Cincinnati, the team they look to challenge in the Central, so don’t expect the long ball to stop anytime soon.
Jason Heyward….That’s All You Need To Know
Two years, Heyward has been in the Opening Day lineup for the Braves. Two years, there has been a home run from the rightfielder. Heyward was even bothered by a thumb injury for a lot of the 2010 campaign, and if he remains 100% healthy this season, Heyward could explode….like, 35 homers and 100 RBIs. Try to trade for him if you can.
