Jump, already. (Note: I wrote this last night. It didn’t publish.)
Fifteen games today? Well, fifteen words for each.
- Marlins over Nationals. Fish continue early-season dominance; almost a quarter of the stadium is full.
- Braves over Phillies. Sweep allows Braves fans to dream and Citizens Bank denizens to boo.
- Diamondbacks blank Rockies. Colorado’s bats go cold after two hot games; Rockies’ arms roughed up.
- Rays over Red Sox as Kazmir outduels Lester. Longoria homers, Crawford triples, Ortiz fans twice.
- Yankees over Orioles. Semblance of order restored in Bronx as Wang looks strong, goes seven.
- Tigers over Blue Jays. Pity pick: Tigers need to not be swept by bad Toronto squad.
- Reds over Mets. Once more, Edinson Volquez dazzles at season’s outset. Just wait ’til July.
- Cubs over Astros. Ted Lilly twirls gem after rocky second inning. ‘Stros clone Roy Oswalt.
- Rangers over Indians. Yeah, like Fausto Carmona is really different from Cliff Lee. Rangers mash.
- Twins over Mariners. Carlos Silva returns to old stomping grounds, is mercilessly battered, chased early.
- Royals over White Sox. Zach Greinke pitches eight strong; Gavin Floyd looks rusty, wants a Whopper.
- Cardinals over Pirates. Pujols homers again. Pirates dip below .500, stay there for entire season.
- Dodgers over Padres. Manny homers for first time this year, immediately starts eating grass. Eccentric.
- Athletics over Angels. Try as they might, East Coast viewers fail to muster any enthusiasm.
- Brewers over Giants. Yovani Gallardo makes Randy Johnson look old. Ancient. Superannuated, perhaps. Possibly antediluvian.
