Last night, the Yankees' opening day roster had a different position player at each spot than a year ago. Brett Gardner moved from center to left. Everybody else was new.

Jim Bowden on ESPN questions the Tigers going into the season with a shortstop as weak as Alex Gonzalez: "How can a World Series contending team such as the Tigers really not have a serviceable alternative to Jose Iglesias, who is out with stress fractures in both shins?"

Sabathia was the same, too. The way he pitched, however, made me wish someone new was in for him, too. The Astros didn't hit balls harder in pre game batting practice.

Sorry about the above blank post by me. I hate when I'm posting something from an iPad and, when trying to hit one of the buttons for Bold, Italic, or Link, they are hidden under the adds on the right. I tried to fix it, couldn't, dinner was ready, gave up, blah, blah, blah.

Nice gift from Jonathan Papalbon tonight for my Texas Rangers.

I love the jazzy rendition of ESPN's Baseball Tonight they use during some between-inning talk. It's by John Pizzarelli and sounds like the music for a Rat Pack movie.

Looks like Captain Cheeseburger already has his career winding down.
