Each day during the regular season you’ll find a regular feature here on Full Spectrum Baseball called “Line of the Day“. It will feature the best on-field performance of the day with a mix of real world impact and fantasy baseball analysis. Enjoy! SP Kyle Lohse of the St. Louis Cardinals took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and spoiled the Miami Marlins’ home opener in their new ballpark. Thrust into the Opening Day starter role when Chris Carpenter was sidelined with an injury, Lohse helped the defending World Champions start off the 2012 season right with a 4-1 victory over the revamped Marlins. Line: 7.1 IP | 2 H | 1 ER | 0 BB | 3 K; W (1-0) | QS My fantasy perspective: Lohse is only owned in 7.2% of ESPN leagues but you can expect that number to rise after tonight’s performance. I’d advise you to use restraint if you are deciding to drop a player to pick up Lohse. It’s one start and there’s no reason to go blowing up your roster unless you are already handcuffed by injurie...

Morning Briefing - "Opening Day"

At this time, I would like anyone who thought Kyle Lohse would take a no-hitter into the 7th, raise their hand...I thought so. What else happened? David Freese picked up where he left off in October getting 3 hits, 2 RBI and a run. He's a popular pick for sleeper at 3B this year, we just wonder if he can stay healthy. Rafael Furcal got himself 3 hits, an RBI and a steal...

The St. Louis Cardinals Aren’t Feeling the Marlins New Stadium

Jayson Stark did an article for ESPN yesterday that talked about some of the St. Louis Cardinals’ reactions to the new stadium in Miami. I found some of the comments pretty damn funny… Cardinals 1B Lance Berkman: “I just feel like, if it were up to me — and it’s not; nobody asked me, and I don’t know why anybody would care about my opinion — but if I was building...

Carlos Zambrano must have spent the offseason with Phil Jackson, because dude is sounding like a Zen master.

The BP First Take: Wednesday, April 4 by Daniel Rathman

When Josh Johnson takes the mound tonight and throws the first stateside pitch of the 2012 regular season, he will be making his third consecutive appearance as the Marlins’ Opening Day starter. The difference is that, for the first time in those three seasons, Johnson’s team projects to be a contender. The 28-year-old Johnson had his 2011 campaign cut short by a shoulder...

The Florida Marlins were a mess. They were a bland, unexciting team as recently as a year ago despite having Mike Stanton, Logan Morrison, Hanley Ramirez, and Josh Jonson on roster. Their stadium was run down and disheveled, and even their uniforms were lifeless and uninspired (despite having a dope hat). These Miami Marlins are far from their predecessor. Add some orange to the...
