Wrecking Crew vs Cobras is arguably the most anticipated game 1 of the JAL 16 season with the Crew ranked #4 and the Cobras #3. Both teams have sporadic offenses, so the key will be limiting "big plays." Neither team has a very deep batting lineup, so limiting home runs and triples will be key because once you get down to the back half of their hitters they both struggle to drive in runners on base. Expect plenty of excitement with runners getting into scoring position, but probably a low scoring affair.
