    MLB Baseball, it's fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Twins have the worst 3, 4 and 5 starters in the AL. Ramon Ortiz, Ponson and Carlos Silva, yuck.

    The question is whether they are quality or not But you are so right, our bullpen has been amazing. But at this rate, they won't last another week.

    Anyone know if Damon is playing tonight? If he is I would then assume Melky in LF.

    Thank god. Melky in the lead off spot was ugly. If Damon wasn't able to play I would have liked to see 1. Jeter 2. Cano

    I disagree. He came up with a big pinch hit bunt on opening day. So far he is batting .333 with 3 hits 2 runs with 9 at bats. I think he is a pretty good role player and is great defensively. Do you really need an all-star 1-9?

    Yeah he's fine for what he does; he's a good defensive player too

    He kills you with the stick but he's a good defensive 1B.

    Good start for the Yankees

    -Double by Damon
    -Infield single by Jeter
    -RBI single by Abreu
    -Walk by Giambi
    -2 RBI ground-rule double by Posada, who is hitting very well.

    3-0 Yankees. Alright come on Pavano!

    It's obviously very early, but he's been okay so far. If he has a .359 OBP like he did last year, he'll be fine.

    no, but i am basically going by what i saw of him when he was a met 2 years ago.....

    great in the field, but too much of a liability at the plate.....

    well, the mets lineup wasn't quite as deep then as it is now, you guys have a deep lineup so i guess you can carry his bat
