Daily: 5 things we learned in sports on Monday

Five Things we learned on Monday:

1) Baseball is back!

2) The closers for the Brewers and Cubs (in this case Eric Gange and Kerry Wood) are terrible, or at least they were on this day. What a thriller at Wrigley. After Carlos Zambarno and Ben Sheets pitched brilliant for six innings these two came in and turned a pitcher's duel into an all out slugfest in the ninth inning. Both teams scored three runs apiece against them. Milwaukee won 4-3 in 10.

3) The Colts-Bears will open up the season on Sunday night football. ESPN’s Monday night football is a doubleheader (like always) with Packers-Vikings and Broncos-Raiders. The Giants are also playing the Redskins on Thursday night to actually open up the season. It appears the first weekend will be filled with some very good NFL football.

4) The Stanford Twins of Robin and Brook Lopez are going to the NBA. Robin decided to join his brother Brook on Monday.

5) Percy Harvin will miss the entire spring of football at Florida and might need surgery to repair a heel injury. Urban Meyer did say that if he does need the surgery it will not affect him one bit during the regular season.

What to watch on Tuesday:

1) Daz-K and the Red Sox take on the Athletics. I like Boston to take the second of three games in this series, mainly because I think Matsuzaka will pitch well.

2) Two huge NBA regular season games. Spurs-Warriors and Nuggets-Suns are both huge out West where every game matters for seeding.


A few predictions for Tuesday:

1) Denver beats Phoenix (NBA) in a very high scoring game.

2) Felix Hernandez pitches a gem against the Rangers (MLB).

Not sure exactly about the time but that's true....the Giants-Redskins opener was moved up an hour or two because of the Republic National Convention later that night.

I personally like Gagne and I also stated that they only sucked today....not that they will all season. I was just talking about today's game. The Brewers will be just fine, even if Gagne struggles.

We also learned that UGA led by Knowshon Moreno will be winning the Cocktail Party this year as well Dan. But Good luck to the Gaytors next year.

Even if Gagne sucks Dan, the Brewers have other good relievers in Riske, Torres and Turnbow to replace him.
