MLB's Opening Night Open Thread

USA TODAY Sports

Baseball season is officially here with the kickoff of the 2013 season tonight as the newly American League'd Houston Astros host the Texas Rangers. Bud Norris and Matt Harrison get the start for the Astros and Rangers, respectively, in tonight's AL West division matchup. Can the Rangers keep a hold on the division without the help of Josh Hamilton and Mike Napoli? Will the Astros be the doormat of the West or find a way to keep their heads above water?
