If you're looking for some light reading....

Tigers SP Max Scherzer threw 8 innings of shutout ball in beating the Yankees 4-0. He allowed only 4 hits with 2 walks and 9 Ks. He’s 4-0 on the season with 46 Ks in 45 2/3 IP. Tigers OF Magglio Ordonez hit his first homer of the season and doubled his RBI total from 2 to 4. DH Victor Martinez returned to the lineup and went 1-3 with a walk and a run.  Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez was 0-4 with 2 Ks & is in the midst of a 5-40 slump that has seen his average drop to .256.  What the H?


Giants OF Andres Torres hopes to return from the DL on Friday.

Mets OF Jason Bay will return from paternity leave on Thursday.

Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez missed Wednesday game with a quad injury.

Rangers OF Nelson Cruz also missed his game Wednesday with a quad injury.  You know they are teammates on one of my teams.

Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is in the midst of a 29 game hitting streak and hoped to extend it to 30 Wednesday afternoon.  But he sat out the game with left elbow inflammation.  Wait what?

Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton has been shut down with elbow soreness.  Look for Vincente Padilla to vulture some saves.

Reds SP Johnny Cueto will return on Sunday, not Saturday as previously reported on FB2K.

Blue Jays 2B Aaron Hill will return from the DL on Sunday.

Blue Jays lefty SP Ricky Romero will have his Thursday start pushed back to Sunday due to a sore oblique.

Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista hopes to return to the lineup Sunday as well.  Lots of new faces out there for Toronto on Sunday.  Maybe they should wear name tags?

Yankees SS Derek Jeter left the game in the 8th inning with a sore right hip.



Hey it is 4/4 today. Paying homage to The Man...just don't let him near the Queen!!

So I’ve been telling you all along not to panic…it’s only the first week of the season. Hitters are very streaky. What about pitchers you ask? I wouldn’t overreact over pitching debuts either. But what you can do is target the owners that do.  Look for someone in your league with a trigger finger like Raylan Givens and make your move.  Here’s some guys to target…
