Work a Day, Get a Day Off

I've never quite figured out why most major league baseball teams play opening day (which was yesterday) and then get the next day off. For a sport where teams should be used to playing 8-12 games between days off, why take a day off after one day in a row. Can't they at least play an entire series before taking a break?

The Cubs (without which baseball would never be the same) are probably enjoying the day off, considering what they went through to beat the Reds yesterday. I really hope blowing 5-run leads doesn't become a habit. That reminds me...if you think taking a day off on your second day of the season doesn't make sense, how about Will Ohman getting the win even though he only faced one batter? Who ever established that as standard practice?
