April 9th & 10th

Some thoughts over the weekend:
  • Randy "30 Wins" Johnson's line of 6 innings, 8 hits, 5 runs (4 earned) makes him look very human right now. Wrapup
  • Pedro "Six Innings" Martinez throws a complete game, two hit, one run shutout for the first Mets' win. What's even more impressive: He's currently on the pace for 336 strikeouts and has a 7 K/BB ratio. Huh!
  • John Smoltz is 0-2, but his 7 1/3 innings, two runs, 15 (!) strikeouts make his move to the rotation look less rash. And he lowered his ERA for 24.40 points.
  • Am I the only one who thinks Manny Ramirez looks like he still has a hangover from the World Series party? It seems to me that he wants to be in bed instead of at the plate right now. Also, have to checked out his official picture on It supports my hangover theory. It also explains why he tried to steal 3rd base today: He wanted to get back to the dugout as quick as possible, but unfortunately for him, he was save.
  • The Phillies' offense sure looks good so far, thanks to Pat Burrel, who's hitting 1.443 OPS with 3 HR in the first six games. If their pitching gets it together, they might finally challenge the Braves and the Marlins for the division.
More later...
