Yeah I know it's not Colorado...but it's funny!

On the day of Wrestlemania, we had a snowed out game and a triple play. Another full slate of games today so let’s get right to it.
First an update on Evan Longoria. They are claiming he’ll be out 3 weeks..officially on the DL today as you learned on earlier.

Ian Kinsler, Mark Texeira..both 3 homers in 3 games. Kinsler finally hit one today that didn’t lead off a game.
Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia a CG SHO today with 9Ks and 4 scattered hits.
Justin Masterson a bright spot for the Indians so far this season. Got the win by giving up 1ER over 7IP. No Ks though. Guess you can’t have it all Cleveland, you beat the Heat and you turned a triple play today.
Randy Wolf of the Brewers got knocked around by the undefeated Reds today to the tune of 6 ERs & 10H over 4IP.
Zach Britton, Orioles phenom called up due to Brian Matusz being placed on the DL. Got his first ML win in his first career start. 6IP, 3H, 6Ks and only 1ER.
Joe Nathan update…shaky save today. He loaded the bases, but did get the save in his first appearance since Tommy John surgery last year.
Matt Garza making his first appearance in the NL for the Cubs. Scatters 12 hits over 7 innings but 12Ks. Left with the but Carlos Marmol after being uber-efficient yesterday, blew the save today. 2H, 1BB and 2ERs for Carlos today.

Popular on draft day…A’s SP Gio Gonzalez gave up 1 ER in 7IP with 6 hits and 4BBs & 4 Ks in the win.

Bobby Abreu went 5-5 with a homer and 2 RBIs and Howie Kendrick hit 2 homers in the Angels extra inning win.  The game went extra innings because the Angels bullpen blew the game again.  First of all starter Scott Kazmir only last 1 1/3 innings and filled the stat sheet..but in a bad way.  5 hits, 5 runs, 2 walks, a gopher ball, 2 HBP, and a balk.  That’s hard to do!  The Angels bats kept them in the game as you know but the bullpen couldn’t hold the leave.  Fernando Rodney blew the save by walking the bases loaded in the ninth before giving up the tying runs.  KCs walk off homer by Matt Treanor in the bottom of the 13th was the 3rd straight game the Royals beat the Angels in their last AB.  Treanor of course is the husband of beach volleyball legend Misty May Treanor.
Only 6 games on the schedule tomorrow.  Plan accordingly.
