This must be a first...Johnny Damon thrown out stealing 2nd on ball 4 to Trot Nixon.
Steinbrenner seen writing out a check to the 2nd base ump while happily chomping on a calzone.

As for the Rockies...they lack just one thing...pitching.
Their staff would be subpar in Comerica Park with the fences moved out instead of in, in Coors the team ERA is likely to be double digits....female dogs!

No playoffs for the Rockies...lady pooches!

3 walks, 3 hits, 5 runs in 2/3rds of an inning...

perhaps he should have pitched a bit in the offseason

Mo was getting booed a bit when he left the game. That's harsh.

not that i really care either way... but with the amount of times that the red sox have hit derek jeter, purposely or otherwise, you'd think by now joe torre would take off the skirt and have someone put a fastball in the ear of ortiz or varitek.

the yankees are pansies these days.

Very...as a yankees fan, I cant imagine booing Rivera.

The guy has problems facing the Sox, he was like 0-2 and blew 4 out of 10 or something against them last year.

Is it a problem? Could be, but the guy is as good as it gets. He'll save 40 this year, and hopefully a few against Boston.

I agree. When the game got out of hand in the 9th and it was 7-3 , I thought Rivera was going to nail someone. He was throwing everything out of the strike zone anyway...might as well

i pretty much agree with this, yet i still have their entire starting rotation on my fantasy team, man am i screwed...i didn't even participate in the live draft, i just got stuck with them.

but, jennings was the '02 rookie of the year and is 23-14 all time at coors. chacon made the all- star game as a starter the year before last (and is back in the rotation after is AWFUL bullpen stint last year). hopefully chin hui tsao gets healthy, he's been a league wide top prospect for a few years. and for a closer, we have byung yung kim. he has shown talent at times, but is also a notorious choker, so only time will tell,

and except for the fact that they are on my fantasy team, i don't care what their era is. the only numbers that matter are the numbers in the 'w' column. as they showed in the opener, they can give up 10 runs, and still win the gam. so i'm not worried about their stats (or lack thereof). i just care that the team wins.

and finally, eveyone forgets that the other team has to pitch here too. the altitued effects both teams equally, and everyone's era's skyrocket after a visit to denver.

Oh, Ryan Dempster...

Going to the Cubs home opener on Friday...I hope Kerry Wood doesn't stub his toe.

I hate being negative, but sometimes...at least when we were losing, it was easier to take.

Actually, I heard that the Atlanta Braves pack their own atmosphere whenever they travel to Denver.

Chargers 14, Broncos 6...

No wait thats Padres 14, Rockies 6.

If Bung Hole Kim (btw thank your GM for taking him off the Red Sox' roster) is your closer, why is he entering the game in the 5th inning?

Rockies pitching line of the day:
Allan(Homer) Simpson: 0.0 IP 2H 5ER 3BB...his season ERA balloons to 67.50

Of course, A-Rod didn't exactly help him out, either.

the patheticness continuuuuuuuuuues...

Even inanimate objects are getting in on the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. The Boston Globe is reporting that Patrick Lyons, who is working furiously to get his new sports bar at Fenway Park ready for next week's home opener, refused delivery of his bar stools Tuesday. That's because the stools, manufactured by L.B. Furniture of Hudson, N.Y., were plastered with stickers reading "Made by Yankee Lovers." Lyons ordered the stickers be removed. He also sent a picture of the final out of last year's ALCS to the furniture company.

I can't believe Cleveland hit THREE homers in the 9th to tie it up against Chicago.
