- If Ben Sheets can stay in that form all season and IF he can stay off the DL, we're going to have a hell of a team this year.
- Kerry Wood is everything I want. His first pitch hits Rickie Weeks to put our fastest man on, he gives up hits to Ryan J. Braun and Corey C. Hart in order to give us a 3-0 lead in the top of the 9th. Uhhh, hey donbedouin: isn't that what a closer ISN'T supposed to do?
- Speaking of what closers aren't supposed to do, Eric Gagne proved why he's washed up. FFS we already have one Derrick Turnbow on this team, we don't need another. Shape up or ship out.
- Kosuke Fukudome is as advertised. I'm glad he's in my fantasy lineup.
- When did Craig Counsell find his bat again? I mean I know he had a good spring but seriously?
- Tony Gwynn Jr. had one hell of a game. He can play defense, he can run the bases, he can get ON base, he can hit, and he can drop down a nice sac bunt. Let's hope Mike Cameron can fill those shoes when he gets back!
