opening night: second inning

homersJust saw a guy having a conversation with a person even though he had his cell phone plastered to his ear. Very odd.

Also on the odd front was Myers’ first pitch of the second inning to Jeff Francoeur… that one turned into a souvenir and gave the Braves a 3-0 lead. An out later, rookie Jordan Shafer smacked one near the 409 sign in left-center.

For Shafer it was a pretty big hit in his first Major League plate appearance.

Yeah, that’s right… a home run in his first Major League plate appearance. Pretty good. Jermaine Dye was the last Brave to homer in his first AB. Mark Saccomanno of the Astros was the last big leaguer to homer in his first at-bat. He did it last Sept. 8.

Meanwhile, all the homers shoot my theory about Myers being relaxed right in the rear.

Derek Lowe has been relaxed — six up and six down for the new Brave. He also has a four-run lead.
