Framber Valdez gets the tough assignment going up against Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout, and the LA Angels

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Besides Astros players, Shohei Ohtani is my favorite major leaguer. The only thing that could make this opening day game better is if it were played in Houston, at a normal time of day.

But who cares. Baseball is baaaack. We thought it might not happen just about a month ago. And the Astros are still favored to win the Division.

The lineup is not available at the time of this writing but you will see it at this link come game time.
