Default MLB - Thought of the Day - April

We started this thread last year. Post your thoughts about anything. I'll start a new thread every month so it doesn't get to filled up.

I'd just like to say J. Robinson day is Sunday. The players can wear #42 if they like. This is such a great idea to honor JR - and its no surprise to me that this was Ken Griffy Jr's idea.

EDIT: I see Fresh already had a thread going about this... sorry bout that guys... but great story anyway so I don't mind repeating it.

On a "today" note what job Felix did today shutting down the BoSox. A CG 1 hitter - JD Drew broke up the no-no in the 8th. I love to see great pitching, too bad my boys were on the arse kicking end of it today!! ha ha

It's a shame that Dice-K's debut at Fenway was spoiled by the better effort of Felix and the M's....more games to be played....

What a series the Yankees and A's just had! Lot of extra innings and walk-offs.

Well, we are on week number one and counting since Kansas City has won a ballgame.

It's nice to see David DeJesus contributing at the plate for the Royals, but it is a shame that he is the only Royal player to have played in ten or more games to start the season that is hitting above .300. In fact, he is one of only two players for Kansas City to have played in ten or more games this season that is hitting above .250, as five Royals players are hitting below .200.

If Monday's game at Detroit was any indication on what kind of a year it will be for Kansas City fans, it won't be fun.

Starting Pitcher Zach Greinke lasted ony two-thirds of an inning, giving up a Grand Slam to "Pudge" Rodriguez in the first, while Manager Buddy Bell had two third basemen on the field, yet had catcher Jason LaRue playing the position.

Welcome to my life of following the major league equivalent of The Bad News Bears...

The Royals have made some improvements, but still may be the worst team in baseball. When will Luke Hochevar throw his first major league pitch?

Boy Ramon Ortiz pitcher for Minnesota is off to a fast start at 3-0 with an ERA of 2.05. Great win over Seattle. He didn't walk the first batter in seven innings of work.

It might be a while. Hochevar is currently working in Wichita, and his last start wasn't very impressive - he reached his 75-pitch limit in only three innings of work, giving up one run, three hits, and three walks while only striking out five.

I've been saying all winter that all Ortiz needed was a change in coaching and scenery. He didn't like being on the East Coast, and the Nationals' clubhouse was not particularly pleasant last year, from reports I've read. The Twins' clubhouse is more of a family atmosphere, which is good as it is very, very small. I think Ramon Ortiz will do very well for the Twins. Having the best pitcher in baseball to talk to on a daily basis cannot hurt anyone.

I remember Ramon when he was in Cincy. He was always that guy that you knew could win upwards of 15 games for you, but he just never put it together. I didn't like when the Reds lost him, because I knew the talent was there. I hope he does well with the Twins.

I can.

As for the Royals they very well may be an improved team but the fact that they play in the deepest division in baseball does not help matters much.

Kansas City has won three of their last four games, and won their first series of 2007 over the weekend, defeating Minnesota twice.

I am heading to the stadium tomorrow to watch Kansas City host Chicago.
