Achievers/Bums - Opening Day Edition
Welcome back baseball! Here are the little urban achievers and bums from the first day (sorry Sunday Night Baseball) of the season.
Jason Heyward - OF - Braves - 2/5, HR, 4 RBI. I think that this guy will have a great MLB career. That being said, SELL, SELL, SELL. Seriously, when will his value be any higher than it is this morning? Sell him to That Guy in your league.
David Wright - 3B - Mets - 1/3, HR, 2 RBI. It is very nice to see Wright hit an HR in his first game. In my bold predictions, I lamented Wright's missing power. It would be great to be proven wrong.
Garrett Jones - OF - Pirates - 2/4, 2 HRs, 4 RBIs, 3 Rs. Last season, Jones put a line of .293/21/44 in just 82 games. Hopefully, this is the start of a great season for him and the Buccos.
Carlos Zambrano - SP - Cubs - 1.1 IP, 8 ERs, L. I don't like to overvalue early pitching performances, but this was just nasty. Not a good start for da Cubs.
Jason Frasor - RP - Blue Jays - .1 IP, L, BS. Newly named closer Jason Frasor did not win over many fans with his debut. Frasor's collapse also wasted Shawn Marcum's fine effort (7.0 IP, 6 Ks, 3 ERs). Maybe Tom Henke is working at a local LensCrafters.
