1st AB of the day against Casey Fossum, sends a piece of cheese over the left-field fence for number 13 on the season. Alex is having a monster season leading the league in every power category including an astonishing 32 RBI's on the season, with 6 games remaining!

Pitching Gems

On the hill for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim tonight was 2005 Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon. Colon appeared in only 10 games last season, and was ready to start off the 2007 with a bang. He did just that. Colon went 7 IP allowing only 1 ER with 7 H and 2 K's. Angel fans needed the addition of Colon as he prompted them into their second straight win, pulling their record up to a reasonable 8-9.

Also today, Philadelphia left-handed Cole Hamels struck out a whopping 15 men in a CG 5-hitter. Hamels lowered his ERA to under 2.6, a mark where only a handful of pitchers are even close too.

Game of The Day!

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Houston Astros:

Probables Wandy Rodriguez HOU vs. Chris Capuano MIL.

Wandy was very exciting in his last start giving up 1 ER in 6 IP for a no-decision against the Florida Marlins, as Chris Capuano is 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA.

In the end I believe the young Brew Crew will come out on top as Capuano will pitch 6 solid innings. Prediction: 3-1 MIL

Rich Hill

Chicago Cubs starter Rich Hill is putting on quite a show lately as his record has blossomed to 3-0 with a league leading 0.44 ERA. Scouts say Rich Hill is looking like the next Barry Zito, as he's got his curveball dropping all the way outta the zone, making numerous hitters look completely foolish. Cub fans hope this can continue, as their team is mildly struggling in the NL Central. My prediction for Rich Hill on the season would be a 3.20 ERA with a 10-4 record. I also believe he will be a huge contributor to the Chicago Cubs' success.

Mike Cameron soon a FA?

According to Ken Rosenthal, Mike Cameron and the San Diego Padres are no longer interested in resigning centerfielder Mike Cameron to a multi-year deal, meaning he will most likely explore the free agency market and sign with a new team.

Akinori Iwamura

Akinori Iwamura, third-basemen for the Tamp Bay Devil Rays, is quickly turning heads. He's made some amazing catches and is blasting the ball at a .400+ clip. His play is making Tampa Bay look exceptionally smart for signing him under the radar as other japaniese players were getting huge payloads.

Felix Hernandez Shining

King Felix quieted all doubters who though he wasn't great as he's logged two excellent outings, one against a great Boston team. Daisuke Matsuzaka was supposed to be the story of the night but that quickly changed as Felix took the show. He's now logged in 18 scoreless innings and has a blur of strike-outs. The Phenom is back!!

K-Rod Denies Allegations

Francisco Rodriguez says that the latest allegations, that he had a mysterious substance on the bill of his hat, are completely false. "It's just rosin, i touch rosin between every batter and adjust my cap, of course that will get there" Frankie said in a recent interview.

Opening Day!

Ahhh. Finally opening day has come!! The St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets faced off on ESPN2 today as the Mets defeated the Cardinals 6-1. Tom Glavine was his usual dominant self, as he quieted the doubters who thought he was too old. Carlos Beltran had a nice game both with the bat and the glove, as he threw out David Eckstein at the plate in the middle-innings. The Mets' defensive was razor sharp and helped clinch the first game of the 2007 campaign.

SD resigns Adrian Gonzalez

The Padres have signed first basemen to a 4-year deal worth anywhere from $9-11M. A very good deal for San Diego, as they get Adrian while he is still cheap.
