We’ve had a Jason Kubel sighting.
The newly acquired Jason Kubel, who came over to the Arizona Diamondbacks after a couple of less than stellar seasons in Minnesota decided to play on Saturday. Kubel went 3/4 with 2 HRs and a triple. Probably couldn’t have done that again if he tried. He added 3 RBI and helped the D’Backs defeat Texas in Surprise, AZ. Surprise!
The man he is in a dead heat for in playing time, Geraldo Parra, went 2/4 with 2 runs scored and a stolen base.
Ian Kinsler former, ASU Sun Devil, went 3/4 with 3 runs scored.
Sticking with the theme of threes (March Madness basketball has me both pissed off and loving the 3), Joe Saunders pitched 3 innings and gave up 3 runs. Not good. Texas reliever Koji Uehara pitched 1 inning and gave up 3 runs. Triple-y not good. Is triply a word?
For what it’s worth, the Red Sox and Orioles tied in ten innings, 3-3.
#….. and an update…. final, 10 innings in the night game…. SF Giants 3, LA Angels 3. Brandon Belt, 3RBI.
I swear I wasn’t looking for these threes. They each hit me right in the face. Oh, BTW, March Madness… Baylor, the #3 seed, dude from there hit 9 threes tonight.
Both the NL West and AL West continue to be the hotbeds of activity in baseball. The latest signing of Yoenis Cespedes only adds to the excitement of what will be an incredible year of baseball on the West Coast. Let’s take a look at WSC’s favorite free agent signings of the 2011-2012 off-season.
Yoenis Cespedes, Oakland A’s – He is going to be fun to watch. I haven’t seen much video, but what I have seen is a sweet swing with opposite field power. Reminds me of Sammy Sosa.
Albert Pujols, LA Angels – The Machine. Enough said.
CJ Wilson, LA Angels – Slots in very nicely to an absolutely dominating rotation. Weaver, Haren, Wilson, Santana. Nasty.
Yu Darvish, Texas Rangers – Hey, if the Yu fits, wear it. Can’t wait to see him pitch a full game versus big league talent. $60 Million. How many Yen is that?
Aaron Harang, LA Dodgers – The man born in San Diego, went to San Diego State and played last season for the Padres will head north up the I-5 to Hollywood. Kershaw and Harang will make a deadly 1-2 combo.
Melky Cabrera, SF Giants – The Milk Man delivers. I don’t know what that means. Giants will be a solid team this year. Last year they couldn’t score any runs. With a few lineup changes and Buster Posey back, how will they do this season?
We don’t have much longer to wait. Baseball is upon us. Who are you most looking forward to seeing play?
