The shutout edition . . .
Nats 1, Phillies 0: All spring the Phillies kept calling themselves "the team to beat." So far, the Nats are taking them up on their gracious offer. By the way, this game featured Ryan Zimmerman's second game-winning homer in three contests. I'll be in my bunk.
Mets 13, Marlins 0: David Wright: 3-5, 3RBI, 2b, HR. Rob Neyer will be in his bunk.
Royals 4, Tigers 0: Brian Bannister (7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 4 K) takes his head out of the spreadsheets for once and plays a damn ballgame, later returns to mother's basement.
Red Sox 5, A's 0: Kevin Youkilis sets record for consecutive games at 1B without an error, as he finished his 194th straight without an E-3. Oakland fans set record for getting shown up in their own home stadium, as the crowd reportedly consists of 75% Sawx fans.
Angels 1, Twins 0: The Angels' two pitchers -- Joe Saunders (8 IP) and F-Rod (1 IP) need only 90 pitches to shutout the Twinkies.
Blue Jays 5, Yankees 2: A-Rod hits a 2-run homer after his team is down by five. How un-clutch can he be?
Indians 7, White Sox 2: Am I the only one who had the feeling all winter that Fausto's Faustian bargain was going to end this year and that he'd start to get shelled this season? Well, it ain't happening yet.
Giants 2, Dodgers 1: I pick on them when they lose, so I need to give them props when they win. Wait, no I don't. They won this game by using Lincecum on both sides of a 1 hour+ rain delay, after jerking him around by deciding at the last minute not to start him (he came out of the pen). He still threw 84 rain-interrupted pitches in four innings. And he had to score the go-ahead run himself. As of now the Giants have still only scored 4 runs in 3 games, putting them on a pace (I know, I know) for 216.
