NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — MARCH 27, 2008
This afternoon’s third inning featured back-to-back home runs off of Kansas City lefthander Mike Maroth, an opposite-field missile off the bat of Hank Blalock and a majestic, right-handed “Hamiltonian” blast (so dubbed by C.J. Wilson) by Milton Bradley, which, neatly wrapped, gives me another opportunity to suggest to you that Blalock (.377/.421/.660) and Bradley are the two keys to transforming this lineup from a question mark to a weapon.
Blalock is going to have a huge year. Huge.
Bradley, if he can stay healthy, is going to play big, too.
This team is going to score runs.
The Mavericks are steadily getting closer to vacating the front page of the sports section a whole lot earlier than expected, and I can’t tell you how ready I am for some baseball.
