Lash had the duties in Minnesota. Here’s his game story.

Here’s a notebook leading with Mike Sweeney being with a team on opening day for a 13th season when there was some doubt whether he would make it.

Lash also had a story talking with the nervous energy of opening day.

ESPN’s Jim Caple had this Q&A with Jason Giambi

The Rangers roughed up last year’s Cy Young winner Cliff Lee. Kevin Millwood looked good yesterday, we’ll see if it continues.
