The new season has started and every team has completed their first two series. It's still way early, but three AL teams that were sub-.500 last year are in first place - Toronto, El Paso, and Los Angeles.
Players to Open the Season Rip-Roarin Hot:
Krause hit the 200th HR of his short career (this is his 6th ML season) and has hit 5 HRs already in Season 10. He's hitting .457 through the first 8 games. He pounded Little Rock by going 5-for-6 with 2 HRs and 5 RBIs in the season's third game.
Terrero, in three starts, is 3-0. He's only given up 4 runs in 21 2/3 IP. He has never made an all-star team and has never won more than 14 games in a season, but if he keeps this up, he will surely accomplish both.
In half of Gentry's games this season, he has driven in 2 or more runs. His 4 HRs and 15 RBIs through 8 games put him on pace for his 7th straight season of 30+ HRs and 100+ RBIs.
J.P. Nunez is proving his worth as the #2 overall pick in season 5. He's 2-0 in two starts, including a complete game victory over the defending champs.
Tough Luck Break of the Early Season:
Unless you are jnewfry, you have to feel bad for William Duran. He pitched a 1-hit complete game against Witchita, but lost 1-0. Duran struck out 8 over 8 innings, but a 7th inning solo HR by Brendan Strong was all the Lineman needed to win.
