Nationals / Cubs Home Openers

by Jason Vernon
2006-04-12

Day Games Galore
In the Washington National home opener the Mets took out the home team with a 7-1 score. Met starter Brian Bannister hurled his second consecutive solid game of the year and the Met offense continues to produce in the one through five spots in the batting order. Alfonso Soriano knocked out his 3rd dinger of the year for the Nationals only run.

In Chicago the Cincinnati Reds belted six homers off the Cubs in a walk away 9-2 victory. Adam Dunn's two homers paced the Reds but the most interesting thing was seeing Rich Aurilia batting fourth in the Red lineup between Ken Griffey Jr. and Dunn. Sure, Red manager Jerry Narron was able to get a left-right-left configuration in the 3-4-5 spots in the lineup, but...Rich Aurilia? The man's the owner of a .436 slugging percentage. Narron's already used Aurilia in the fourth spot in the lineup multiple times this year.

Minor League Duty
A.J. Burnett tuned up in the low minors with 10 innings of solid work this past week and looks to join the big club in coming week. Ben Sheets has pitched very well in two stints in Triple-A but may stay down for one more start before going up to the bigs.

Extensions
The big talk in baseball the last couple of days has been the long-term extensions given to the Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz and Chicago Cubs' Derrick Lee. Both players have been fantastic additions to their respective clubs. They are both very well-liked by teammates and fans alike. They have produced prodigiously at the plate and in Lee's case on the base paths and defensively. But are the extensions a good investment for the team's in the long run? I say yes on both counts. Lee is in his age 30 season and has the body type and skill-set to be successful well into his 30's. The signing signifies to his Cub teammates that the organization is dedicated to winning. In Ortiz's case his signing presents a bit more risk since he has the type of skill-set that can start to deteriorate for a player in his early 30's. In other words, Ortiz is a big ole' ox of a guy who can hit but he can't run or field. In that sense he looks a little bit like Mo Vaughn. Regardless, he has a long way to fall and the Red Sox should get at least 2-3 more premium offensive years out him which would justify the extension.
