Play Ball!

The 2008 season is officially here! Those of you waking up early enough to watch were rewarded with the first blown save of the year by Huston Street. His line: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 3 Earned Runs, 1 BB, 1 HR Allowed.

Though it's early, Street (0-1, 16.20 ERA) is on pace for a record 162 losses.

Other notable performances include Jonathan Papelbon's near blown save, which he avoided thanks to sloppy base running by Emil Brown, who was caught between second and third after an RBI double. Jack Cust contributed nothing, going 0-4 with 4 strikeouts.

A rough start to the season, but nobody was watching, so it's almost like it never happened. But it did, the stats count, and we're under way. It's going to be a good year.

How about the Orioles' contract with Albert Belle???

I'd say that'd falls into the category of bad contracts! Belle's will certainly be featured some time in the future.
