@MLB: President @BarackObama – “I was a little disappointed with the pitch, it was high and outside. I was intentionally walking the guy.”   &   What was your favorite 2010 #openingday moment so far? @JasonHeyward? Kotchman vs. Bailey? Salty? Flyovers?

@robneyer: Garrett Jones makes an awesome start toward proving that last season wasn’t a fluke. A few more multi-homer games and I’ll believe it… Considering what Mark Buehrle did today(yesterday), I sure am glad I had him No. 1 on my Fielding Bible ballot last fall. &   I’ve never seen a player who looked more out of place in a dugout than Tim Lincecum. Which of course makes him all the more endearing.

@alexspeier: Beckett: ‘I look at [deal] as more what I gained than what I potentially lost.’ Highlights from him and Epstein #redsox &  Also noteworthy: Epstein said that ‘there isn’t a medical reason’ that would militate against a deal with Beckett. #redsox

@alysonfooter: Oswalt replaced in 6th by pinch-hitter Cory Sullivan. Final pitching line: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 Ks. 86 pitches, 53 strikes.   &   Lincecum final line: 7 IP, 4 H, 0ER, 0 BB, 7 ks. Giants lead 5-0 in 8th. #astros

@FantasyMLB: Heyward lives up to hype; Z gets rocked; Marcum flirts with no-no; check out the Rundown for all the details: &   One chance to make a first impression: Godzilla conquers Twins, Kotchman leads M’s over A’s

@kellythesier: When Torii Hunter was introduced, he ran over and hugged #Twins manager Ron Gardenhire first and gave a playful shove to Span.

@Ken_Rosenthal: Heyward, Halladay, Pujols, Lincecum. And Buehrle”s play. What an Opening Day! Happy new year, everyone. Enjoy the season! #MLB
