Too many pitches by Santana, José! José! started things off with a hit and a stolen base, Luis Castillo got a hit, and DANIEL MURPHY with the 2 RBI… plus crisp performances from JJ Putz and Francisco Rodriguez… it’s a good beginning for the 2009 Mets. I can’t regard a Phillies/ Braves game as opening day – this is true opening day.
One down, 161 to go.
The University of Arizona is having a hard time filling that coaching job in the Pac-10, and I have no idea why. The Wildcats have a solid name, solid tradition… though following a coaching legend – and his stormy last years – is a hard job.
But Sean Miller would rather stay with the Xavier Musketeers. It’s a good job there in Cincy, and his team has a lot of potential, but that’s a little surprising.
Who’s next on their list? Maybe Utah’s Jim Boylen (who seems like an decent hire who has spent time in the pros). More at UA Hoops Coach, I’ve been following that blog.
