What Kind of Opening Week Has It Been?

I don't think Mr. Sorkin would mind me borrowing and tweaking one of his favorite episode titles for this post.

Kevin Youkilis and Ian Kinsler are off to red hot starts. Ryan Braun has been solid so far. John Grabow picked up the W on Opening Day for the Pirates. Grabow is the first JML to get a win on Opening Day since Steve Stone in 1981. Jason Marquis put on a clinic today against the defending champs in his debut for the Rockies.

Youkilis is 10-16 with 2 doubles, 2 RBIs, 3 runs scored, and 1 BB.

Kinsler is 7-17 with 1 HR, 3 doubles, 6 RBIs, 3 runs scored, and 1 BB.

Braun is 5-17 with 2 doubles, 2 RBIs, 1 run scored, and 1 SB.

Marquis pitched an absolute gem against Cole Hamels and the Phillies to pick up his 80th career win. He went 7 innings, gave up 2 runs, 5 hits, 2 BBs, and had 2 Ks. He was also 2-2 at the plate with a double, a sacrifice bunt, 1 run scored, and 1 RBI. Talk about helping out your own cause!

Gabe Kapler is 1-7 with a double, 1 run scored, 2 BBs, and 1 SB.

Grabow has pitched 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief.

Craig Breslow gave up an unearned run in his 1 inning of relief.

Great Scott! Feldman and Schoeneweis have been throwing batting practice so far.

Brad Ausmus was 2-4 with 1 RBI in his debut with the Dodger Blue today.

I saw Feldman's pitching line today and immediately thought of you.
