The Padres and Angels were the last teams to have home openers. Naturally they wait to have the cities with the best weather open last. I talk about that on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast along with the fact that I think the Luxury Tax has worked wonderfully so far. Also I determined that Cliff Lee, Will Venable, Nick Tepesch and Miguel Cabrera owned baseball on April 9, 2013. Subscribe on iTunes HERE.

It was obvious through General Manager Dayton Moore’s offseason moves that overhauled the team’s Starting Rotation was a primary goal. Moore accomplished this task by adding some of the game’s most durable Starters, resulting in a core of pitchers that should consume a considerable number of Starts and Frames.
It is difficult for any team to be successful without a dependable workhorse anchoring and staff, or providing a stopper who can put an end to any losing streak. The Royals hope James Shields is that pitcher in 2013.
The centerpiece-return of the offseason trade with the Tampa Bay that sent top prospect Wil Myers to the Rays, Shields has developed a formidable reputation for his durability.

The Reds are off to a hot start with a 5-2 record with wins over the Angels, Nationals, and Cardinals.
Those are big wins to start out because on paper all three of those teams should make the playoffs. It just so happened that on Opening Day against the Angels that the Reds left fielder, Ryan Ludwick, had to leave the game due to an injury.
When the injury occurred it didn’t look to serious, but when the x-rays were taken it showed that he had dislocated his shoulder. Along with the dislocated shoulder Ludwick had torn cartilage in his shoulder and needed surgery.
