Craig's Tigers go extra innings and give up a two spot in the top of the tenth to lose to the Blue Jays 5-3. Fernando Rodney is the goat for Detroit as he surrenders those costly two runs in the extra frame. Overbay goes 2 for 4 with a RBI for Toronto and Gary Sheffield comes through for two RBI for the Tigers in the losing effort.
John's Yankees start the season out with a win, 9-5 over Tampa Bay. Giambi goes 2 for 5 with 3 RBI. Pavano only goes 4.1 innings with 4 earned runs before getting yanked. Tampa's starter, Kazmir, didn't do any better with 5 earned runs in five innings.
JohnnyJ's Flubs keep the bats humming from last year with a 5-1 loss to the Reds. Zambrano only goes 5 innings with 5 earned runs. If that keeps up it will be a painful year for the Northsiders. Adam Dunn hits two homers off of Zambrano, and gets 3 RBI.
Snake's Tribe CRUSHES the White Sox, 12-5. Sabathia goes six innings with 3 earned runs, whereas Contreras only made it one inning, good for 7 earned runs. Nice showing on opening day for the Sox, eh Carl? This begins a very long and painful season I predict for Carl, and I said it several weeks ago. Just like the crap table as Carl said, all of his chips will be swept away.
PSL Dave's Red Sox celebrated opening day by getting beaten by the lowly Royals 7-1. Schilling only goes 4 innings giving up 5 earned runs. Grudzielanek gets three RBI for KC while the KC pitcker, Meche, goes 7.1 innings giving up only one earned run for the victory.
