Joey Gathright – He surprised me a little by not only playing leadoff, but by playing it well and going 3-for-3 with a walk. Four times at the plate and all of them yield a time on base. That’s what a leadoff man does. Great job. I don’t see him having any chance at winning the starting CF job right now, but I’d love to see him make a run at it.

Milton Bradley – Left the game with tightness in his left quad muscle. Here we go. First game and first injury.

Jake Fox – Had a big day at the plate. I’m not sure if he’s comfortable playing third, but if he could be the guy to establish himself at the plate, perhaps he could fill that backup IF role at the corner and we could same the money / resources this spring by having to go out and find one.

Nothing else really jumped out at me. What did I miss?
