I was at the game, it was pretty sweet. Papi's homer in the first was amazing, he crushed that ball. All the Philly fans were crushed once that happened. The fact that Drew went 2 for 2 in the while back in Philly was also pretty nice to see. Daisuke looked pretty good. He had a few issues with control, almost hit Rollins twice in his first at bat but settled down a little and got to work. He totally handled Howard and Utley, so thats a good sign, but the base on balls still worry me. I've have got to say though, we had seats 23 rows behind homeplate so we got a good view of his pitches, he has got some killer movement on those things. I foresee good things to come this year for sure.
