How long has Gordon been leading off? This is new this season no? Wasn't Cain leading off last year?


Thanks, just looked it up. Must have seen him lead off against us last year at some point and that left the impression.

Should'a gone fishing

Will do! Opening days are always the best, tailgates everywhere and everyone is in a good mood. Hope the twins can win this series as well, it would be nice to at least have hope this season for a month or two at least, and at the end of the day....if you keep winning you never know what can happen!

So what's up with the outfield? Willingham and Parmelee switching places? Or is that a typo?

My guess is that it's a typo.

They must have told Hicksie to swing at anything with two strikes. :P

Doumit: running bases with his head up is arse since circa forever.

Ugh! That was a buzz-kill. Was that Doumit's fault for not noticing that Morneau wasn't coming home?

I would have sent Morneau and make the Royals throw him out with 2 outs. That being said, Doumit can't "pull a Bruno" and just put your head down and run 'till someone tags you.

i'll forgive doumit for that one, given morneau's blazing speed.

I'm at work, how do you score one run on 4 hits?

Morneau didn't score from second on a single with two outs? Doumit assumed he would just score and advanced from 1st to third only to find Morneau still standing on the bag?

I was exercising and missed the first inning.

One run, four hits.

I don't even want to know how that happened.

Pretty much sums it up.

Does Mauer need glasses or something? This is getting a little ridiculous.

I wonder if the runner distracted Florimon there.

Was anybody else cringing just a little when Florimon took that pop-up?

I need some help as to why that wasn't an error. Clearly hit his glove. :P

Yeah...not impressed so far, at all. Not a tough play. On a positive note, Gardy assures us confidence is not an issue for Hicksie.
