Welcome to the end of week four of the young baseball season, I'm Chris Berman and I hope you're enjoying your Saturday afternoon. There are a lot of questions entering week five as we move into May ... can the White Sox build on their torrid start? ... are the Yankees in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time in eleven years? ... will anyone beat the Cards in the NL this year?
The surprising Orioles are loaded with hitting talent and may be poised to make a run. With budding star Brian "Dread Pirate" Roberts, superstar shortstop Miguel "The Bigger They Come," Tejada "They Fall", plus veteran leadership from Sammy "Broken Sosa" Scene and Rafael "In the Palmeiroplane Over the Sea", they're giving their AL East opponents all they can handle.
And what about last night's fantastic pitching matchups? St. Louis - Atlanta had former Oakland teammates Tim "Out" Hudson and Mark Mulder "and Scully" pitching against each other for the first time. While in Houston, we saw the first NL meeting of 300-game winners in over one hundred years, with Greg "Appa" Maddux outdueling Rocket Roger Clemens. And in New York, the Yankee's struggles continued as Roy "Doc" Halladay beat the Big Unit on the back of Eric "Songs in the" Hinske "of Life"'s two-run home run.
Today, Dontrelle "What Chu Talkin' 'Bout?" Willis and Jamie "Principle" Moyer go for their major-league leading fifth wins, the Orioles try to make it six in a row against Tampa Bay, and a whole lot more.
