Not the ideal way to bring in the new park, but its a long season so you can't take too much away from this. Didn't seem like there was any urgency from the players. They would finally get a runner on and the next guy up would just slap the ball and the Cards would get the force at 2nd. The tone was really just set in the first with JJ struggling and the defense faltering a bit out the gate.

I will say I think its dumb that Kearns made the roster over Peterson.

I can't get firstrowsports to work for the Braves game so I'm in a pissy mood. Haven't tried it for the Sox/Tigers game.

Not watching the game but it looks like Johan Santana is having a great outing so far.

4 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 4 K's and no walks.

Encouraging.

I agree. It's good to see. He was the best pitcher in baseball for a stretch and I'd like to see him top off, what could be, a HOF career with a few good years.

Three games currently in the 5th inning with no score. I know every team has their ace on the mound, but still, three games into the 5th with no score is kind of odd.

Switched over to the Cubs-Nationals game from the Tigers-Red Sox so I could check out Strasburg, he looks good so far, hasn't thrown a fastball under 95, good curveball, just K'd Byrd on a nasty curve.

I had a feeling Bedard would be a steal for the Pirates at the price they got him for. If they can get even get 22-25 starts from him, it was a great move.

Can anybody who's watching the Phils-Bucs tell me what Halladays and Bedards velocity is topping out at?

Have you ever used Pitch F/X? Pretty good tool for looking at pitcher velocity and stuff. Here is a link to Bedard's day (so far)
