If you haven't get put in your lineup guess for Opening Day Night, you can do so in this morning's thread. Likewise, you can follow all of the latest links to news and pictures from Japan there, as well.

For those of you who like players with quirky talismans, check out this video of Josh Reddick and his replica WWE belt, which was, of course, on the flight to Japan with him.

In an extremely sobering and frightening story, Joba Chamberlain's career may be over, as he nearly bled out after suffering an open dislocation of his ankle yesterday at a children's recreation center with his son.

Meanwhile, have an amazing weekend. T-minus four days until real baseball!
