Thumbs up, down

Garrett Jones, Tampa Bay Rays and Raul Ibanez

Thumbs up

Garrett Jones, Pirates: Jones, playing in his first opener after nearly 12 years as a pro, hit two homers against the Dodgers and became the first Pirates player to homer in his first plate appearance in an opener.

Thumbs down

Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays used a smoke machine for pregame intros in the opener at domed Tropicana Field, and the lingering haze led to burned eyes and vision problems for fielders.

Ex-Mariner of the week

Raul Ibanez, Phillies: There are rumblings of concern in Philadelphia after Ibanez followed his .130 spring average by hitting .091 (1 for 11, the hit a single) in the Phillies' season-opening series against Washington.
