This Week's Top 10 MLB Takeaways

10) Snapping back to their time-tested role, Tampa's season is over in April

9) Texas is the best team in baseball by a pretty wide margin, at least until Ian Kinsler gets hurt

8) Manny Ramirez retired on a Friday afternoon, just to see if he could still get Blogfrica coverage on Monday, when people come back to their computers

7) The Phillies and Reds are the only teams in their divisions with a positive run differential, which doesn't speak well to the idea that either will be in a pennant race

6) Miguel Montero and Nick Hundley are in the top three in OPS, because that's just exactly how everyone predicted the year to go

5) The Yankees lost their series in Boston, and our chance to enjoy six full months of Red Sox Fan Anguish

4) Vernon Wells started his Angels career by going 4 for 40, or 1 hit for every $370,039 of salary

3) Erik Bedard is trying his best to destroy the dreams of the 14 people who still believe in his fantasy league relevance

2) Hanley Ramirez has three errors, a .207 batting average, a scary injury and the not-so-secret dread of tens of millions of fantasy honks

1) The only fantasy honks who are more scared are Albert Pujols owners (.143, just one homer on April 2, 4 RBIs, 2 runs scored, 1 steal and 3 errors for a going nowhere 3-6 Cards team)
