Tuesday's trackings

Just a few notes today.

In 2010 elections news, even a Democratic poll (the PPP poll) finds the Republican Toomey leading Arlen Specter in the Pennsylvania Senate race.

Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, the Democrat Russ Feingold is most definitely in trouble--especially if Tommy Thompson runs against him.

Yes, it's back again for another season. Here we go:
Tigers 8, Royals 4: it's only one win, but it's nice to win on Opening Day. The keys to the game: new acquisition Johnny Damon had two hits for the Tigers. And it was nice to see them score 8 runs; their offense is a question this season. And the Tigers' bullpen pitched 3 innings of shutout ball, including a solid inning from oft-injured Joel Zumaya. Keep the good times rolling...
And it was Rangers 5, Blue Jays 4: the Rangers had a good rally; they trailed 3-0 in the 7th, and were without a hit, before they came back. Closer Frankie Francisco pitched well late. Starter Scott Feldman pitched creditably, allowing only 3 runs in 6 innings. The Rangers won 87 games last year and have high expectations this year; team prez Nolan Ryan predicted 92 wins and a division title for them. This come-from-behind win is a good start towards fulfilling those expectations.
