AL EAST W L GB L10 STK E#
New York Yankees 1 0 0 1-0 W1
Toronto Blue Jays 1 1 0.5 1-1 L1 161
Boston Red Sox 1 1 0.5 1-1 W1 161
Tampa Bay Devil Rays 0 1 1.0 0-1 L1 161
Baltimore Orioles 0 3 2.0 0-3 L3 159

Twins 7, O’s 2. The Twins completed a season opening 3-game sweep of the Orioles. Rays fans everywhere are rejoicing as 4th place in 2007 could be a reality. Making his first start for Baltimore, after two seasons with the Yankees, Jaret Wright gave up 4 hits and 5 walks in 2+ innings.

Red Sox 7, Royals 1. The Sox dominated from the start, scoring 3 in the first, making sure that all Royals fans know their place in the universe. Josh Beckett struggled with his control, walking 4, but only gave up 2 hits in 5 innings of work. The Shaggy God of OBP Kevin Youkalis homered for Boston.

Tigers 10, Jays 9
. The Jays scored 7 in the 8th, but still fell 1 run short. AJ Burnett pitched like Nuke LaLoosh screws….kinda, all over the place. He gave up 5 hits, 4 walks and 6 runs in 2 innings. Victor Zambrano was up to his old tricks in his first appearance for the Jays. He walked 3 in 1 inning. ‘Bout right.
  • Daisuke Matsuzaka will make his major league debut today against the Royals. The Royals? It’s always nice to have a tune up for the real games.
  • Baseball Musings says that the Red Sox should be worried about their rotation. We say they might not be yet, but if Dice-K struggles tonight. The Pink Hat Nation will start to panic.
  • At 0-3, is it too early to panic in Baltimore? Maybe not, but they are having serious doubts. Did they really expect Jaret Wright to be a difference maker?
  • Jays manager John Gibbons may not have a lot of job security this season.
  • Apparently Canadians have the sense of humor of a fungoe. A commercial featuring Frank Thomas had to be removed from Canadian broadcasts because it depicts the Big Hurt hitting one of his children with a pillow, with exaggerated effects.
  • Sports in Toronto has come a long ways since the Blue Jays came on board in 1977.

    Hey

    I am a Twins fan, and I dont even know how I stumbled on your blog here. But I just want to say after seeing 1 D-Rays game, and 3 Baltimore games this year, you guys should have the better record.

    Cheers
