Fantasy Baseball Players of the Day – 3/30

Mar 31, 2008

Sunday, March 30th
Well, baseball kicked off in the states as the Washington Nationals opened Nationals Park with a victory over Atlanta.  The offensive hero was Ryan Zimmerman, whose 9th inning heroics (game-winning HR) stole the show.  For the game he was 1-4 with a run and a RBI (obviously).  Nobody had multiple hits from either team.  Chipper Jones had a HR for the Braves.

Although he didn’t get the win because his bullpen didn’t protect the 2-1 lead he left the with, Odalis Perez was great for Washington.  He went five innings allowing one run on four hits with a walk.  His ERA was 1.80 and his WHIP was 1.00.  Honorable mention goes to Tim Hudson who earned a no-decision while allowing two runs in seven innings on three hits.  His ERA was 2.57 with a WHIP of 0.43.  Niether dominated with Odalis only strking out a pair and Hudson stiking out three batters.  Saul Rivera pitched two solid innings and Jon Rauch earned the win.

    Although I loved the Sox games before work, I feel a little cheated today.
