Ichiro has never batted well against DMat in the Japanese leagues so you know Ichiro has been waiting for another shot against him. DMat has also said that Ichiro is the one batter he has wanted to face the most. And while the media focuses on those two, Felix Hernandez takes the mound for the Mariners, and he absolutely dominated in his last start. This game should be great!!!

Felix and Dice K are both looking good so far. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Felix throws a no hitter! :P

Really disappointed at yankees' pitcher line-up. But suprising, they are doing okay. When Wang comes back, everything will change.

nettiemoore - I heard about all those injuries, tough break man.

kiya - Very nice jacket. Uniqlo Japan has a jacket with very similar details on the front. The material and construction probably can't compare to your FH but the Uniqlo jacket is only 3,000 yen.

Did anyone go to any games on Sunday? Not sure if anyone cares but I went to the Dodgers game that day (it was Jackie Robinson Day). I had pretty decent seats so I got to see Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks and some other legends up close. And it was cool to see everyone wear the number 42.

Igewa (sp) pitched well for the Yankess tonight. I need Wang to hurry the fuck back though.

I went to the Dodger Stadium for Jackie Robinson day as well. Kicked ass! Cool comemorative, and one of the best ball games I'd ever been to. Stuck it to the rival Padres grabbing the series, 9-2 victory! I got Mike Cameron's auto after the game which was cool.

Overall the dodgers are looking great Ethier is heating up, and hopefully Kemp will be off the DL soon. The only big loss is Schmitt.

Juan Pierre is pissing me off though! He needs to go in the closet and figure out where the hell he left his game...sometimes he scares me when playing outfield (and frankly I have a better throughing arm.), and I don't care if he can steal a million bases, if he can't get to the first one it doesn't matter much.

Dodgers NL Champs!

that's some pretty clean gear, kiya.

am very dissapointed with matsuzaka. seems like the size and slipperiness of the MLB ball is fucking with him. i hope he gets more consistent soon....

blue jays havent had a good start to the season at all. today they lost their ninth game in a row against the red sox.

whats evens more unfortunate is that it was announced that bj ryan will have tommy johns surgery. he will be lost for the rest of this season and also possibly early into spring training next season. :(

^^^BJ Ryan is basically done for next season too. It takes two years to fully recover ball speed and velocity after Tommy John surgery so next year Ryan won't be as dominant as he is usually.

Dice-K's last outing was pretty good. I think the thing he needs to focus on is throwing strikes when there are runners in scoring position. Runners on base seems to throw him off (perhaps he's just not used to that since he was pretty dominant in Japan), and he starts to walk a lot of guys. If he can get those walks under control, he'll be great.

red sox are doing really, really well.

look at their pitching. they have wakefield, beckett (7 wins-0 losses), matsuzaka and schilling. all with at least 4 wins a piece. closing they have okajima (0.53 ERA), papelbon (10 saves!).

plus their bats are crazy.

matsuzaka is getting better. if everyone stays healthy, it looks like world series time again.
