Baseball Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous baseball thoughts and observations.

Good news for the Red Sox is the opening starts by Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett. Combined the two "aces" are 2-0 with 14 IP, 10 K, 2 BB and a combined 1.93 ERA. That's a really good omen for the hopes of Red Sox Nation... Bad news for the Red Sox is the start of Manny Ramirez who has just 1 single in 10 AB this season (half of his AB have ended in strikeouts which is what is really bothersome)... I'm on record as saying that Jacque Jones will be a bust for the Cubs this year. After two games Jones is still waiting for his first hit (or should I say Cubs fans are still waiting for Jones to get a hit). Just saying but Jeromy Burnitz is hitting .333 with a HR already for the Pirates. The Cubs would have been better off keeping Burnitz... I'm also on record as saying this will be a breakout year for JJ Hardy in Milwaukee. After 3 games Hardy is hitting .364 with 2 HR and a .909 slugging percentage... The two leaders in RBI this year are Richie Sexton and Andruw Jones - both have 7 ribbies... Happy birthday to Framingham's own Lou Merloni who turns 35 today.
