"Every one of my coaches felt like a big weight was lifted off their shoulders, and my shoulders, basically...It's kind of fun to see the players go out there. We just snapped a two-game losing and they're celebrating like they're clinching the [National League] East."

NAAAts down Marlins 10-6 on Dmitri Young Walkoff Grandslam!!***
0-162 is now out of the question. 1-161, well, that's another story.
Is it possible for there to be a must-win game the third game of the season?
Congrats to Manny Acta on win #1.
So many positive things to say that we won't mention anything Matt Chico (and how burned out the bullpen will be by May if the starters keep it up at this rate).
***Gotta love MASN. Grandslam!!?? Dramatic win, yes, but do you think someone got a little carried away there in the production booth? I need to know if there's a button that accidently got pushed? What happened?
