Box Scores

Today is an important day.  Yes, I know yesterday was Opening Day.  But today is the first day we all get to browse to our favorite sports web site and see the full unadulterated list of box scores from the day before (for the record, I prefer USA Today’s site since they will list all box scores on one page. No clicking back and forth).

Today these box scores are full of extreme averages such as Zito’s ERA of 47.25 and Julio Lugo’s batting average of 1.000.  Of course, after a few games, these averages will eventually mellow out (Zito’s may take a while). 

I get to scroll down and see a relative unknown Japanese catcher with HR (1) by his name, his first career hit. 

I look through the box scores, screening them for players on my APBA team or my money draft team.  I see that Glavine allowed just one run in 6 innings and went 2 for 2 (he even was involved in a double play).  Albert Pujols was 2 for 2 with 2 homers (yess!).

And yes, despite a poor performance by Carlos Zambrano, the Cubs scored 16 runs and are in first place with a record of 1-0. 

The best part is that there will be a whole new set of box scores to look at tomorrow.
