A 4-2 start is nice. Vizquel and Moises have come out of the blocks red-hot, let’s hope Alou keeps in mind that these guys are 40 years old, and gives them the rest that they’ll need to stay hot, (unlike last season when he played his son for something like 35 games in a row right off the DL).
Schmidt’s allowed 9 earned runs already, Tyler Walker’s playing himself out of baseball, Taschner’s allowed 5 runs and gotten two outs. Durham, Matheny, Feliz, Bonds, and Sweeney are all waiting for that first big day at the plate.
The real surprise so far is Finley, who looks younger, faster and better than I would have expected. He’s making Sabean look pretty good right now. The depth of this outfield will determine how well the season goes, and if Finley can perform like this, (or even close to this), he and Winn could easily make up for the missed time we can expect from Alou and Bonds.
