Home Opener 4/9/10

Well today was fun.  Went down way early to be first in line.  Saw all
of both BP’s.  Talked to Ronnie for a while, and he introduced me to
Kranny and Trembley.  Got 2 baseballs but both now are with kids.  Had
a fun time with John, Seg, and Poverty.  Sat 336 Row 2 best view in
ballpark.

Notes:

-Proud of Bergesen for picking up
his game.  After a very unsteady first inning, the O’s came back with
some runs, and Brad was able to keep with it at an alright level for
the rest of his 4.2 IP

-Atkins keeps showing us he can hit. 
Very happy.  Lugo showing us he can’t.  Cesar came thorough with the
tying single in the clutch, which, although very surprised, was very
proud of.  Wieters couldn’t keep up his 2 hits per game streak.

-Robets
hurt.  I know it’s not his back, but still.  C’mon man!  That’s aimed
at Trembley.  I know he could have done this anyway, but with a short
spring and all, he should have sat out last night to be completely
ready for today.  He is day-to-day.

-Jones had an offday, which is acceptable from all players that do great like him to begin with.

-Gonzalez: 
Ok, here’s my thing with it.  I think he still has lingering injury
plus some stress issues probably.  People booed him entering, which I
felt to be pitiful.  He, before the booing, had only lost one.  *******
thinks that got to him in his team’s home opener debut.

We need
to either keep trust in him to improve, trade, or send to the minors
for a month to get up to par.  I disagree with closer by committee
because it confuses the order of things.

-O’s fans got upset
over a few calls.  The ones people booed that were correct completely
just goes to show that the umps in Tampa got peoples hopes up.

-Aaron
Hill was out again, helped a lot because more sluggers against Bergy in
his premier game would not have helped that first ERA.

-To close the top of the 9th, Cla came in to throw a series of 4 nice pitches to strike out Alex Gonzalez on a 1-2 swinging.

-Scott
solid again in right, yet no plays yet to prove who is better between
him and Reimold, since I don’t feel anymore since Tuesday that I can
believe in Reimold to be great.  Pie looked fine, and hopefully will
get the start tomorrow.  If not, definitely Sunday.  Trembley said he
would get in one game this weekend.

Very proud of Pie’s
baserunning.  With Izturis’ single, Pie knew it was important to score
to get the go-ahead run.  He went from 1st to home on a nice, but not
that nice, sinlge.  Rounding 3rd, he looked like a monster in action
with rocket legs.

-Impressed with Hendrickson.  3.1 IP of no hit ball with 3 K 1 BB.  Nice!Well today was fun.  Went down way early to be first in line.  Saw all of both BP’s.  Talked to Ronnie for a while, and he introduced me to Kranny and Trembley.  Got 2 baseballs but both now are with kids.  Had a fun time with John, Seg, and Poverty.  Sat 336 Row 2 best view in ballpark.
