First and foremost, Happy Easter to everybody as well as a Happy Passover. Second, has anyone else been getting the 'Invalid Form' error in red when they try to post, asking them to try submitting again? It happened to me yesterday for a little bit and then again just now I've been trying to post this for like 15 minutes...News, Notes, & Nonsense...
- Finish this sentence... "Yoenis Cespedes is _______________________________."
- Zack Greinke was excellent in what many have pegged as a possible return to Cy Young form this year, going 7 innings of shutout ball fanning 7.
- Both Lucas Harrel and Tommy Hunter both also notched 7 shutout inning starts in winning efforts, though with much less fanfare.
- Lucas DUDA, Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera, Cory Hart, and Aaron Hill all smacked 2 HR apiece yesterday in winning efforts.
- The Mets stove off the end of the season for yet another day, moving to 2 - 0 atop the NL East, while the Yankees face being swept by a division opponent today to start 0 - 3.
- Highly polarized Dee Gordon swiped 3 successful bases for the Dodgers last night in a 3-for-4 effort.
- Largely debated Brandon Morrow surrendered just 1 hit over 7 innings, issuing 3 walks and striking out 3, which was described as a poor performance by Cafe Jays fans. He gets Baltimore next time out, where I anticipate he'll give up 5 Earned only to hear the same fans cite how well he pitched
