MLB scores, Ozzie Guillen press conference & Quick News & Notes: 4/11, Vol. 118, 2nd Edition

When Jesus is my portion, A constant friend is he, His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches over me, His eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches me ! Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!
There were twelve games on the diamond last night in Major League Baseball as the Tampa Bay Rays were crushed by the Detroit Tigers 5-2 as the Tiger remain undefeated, the Pittsburgh Pirates came up short against the LA Dodgers 2-1 as Andre Ethier launched a homerun, the New York Yankees need 12 innings to get past the Baltimore Orioles 5-4, the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals knocked off the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 as Carlos Beltran and David Freese both launched homeruns, the Chicago White Sox game against the Cleveland Indians was postponed due to the weather, the Washington Nationals put up a touchdown against the New York Mets and won 6-2 as the Mets lose their first game, while the Boston Red Sox were blasted by the Toronto Blue Jays 7-3, the Milwaukee Brewers clobbered the Chicago Cubs 7-4 as Alex Gonzalez helped out with a homerun, the Seattle Mariners were SHUT OUT by the Texas Rangers 1-0 as Neftali Feliz pitched seven scoreless innings in his first career start, the Atlanta Braves ran past the Houston Astros 6-4 as Chipper Jones returned to the lineup with a homerun, the Kansas City Royals SHUT OUT the Oakland A’s 3-0 as Mitch Maier launched a homerun, and the Arizona Diamondbacks needed 11 innings to get past the San Diego Padres 4-2 as Chris Young launched a homerun in the 11th inning to help secure the win.

In sporting news, Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen held a press conference in Little Havana yesterday morning to address the media concerning his insensitive comments about his admiration of Fidel Castro.  Several minutes prior to his press conference as announced on my Twitter page @ceejaysports, the Marlins brass suspended Ozzie for five game in hopes quailing the boiling temperatures in the area.  The majority of Guillen’s conference was held in his native tongue of Spanish in which he stated as translated to English “I feel like I betrayed my Latin community," Guillen said, according to ESPN's translation of his comments in Spanish. "I am here to say I am sorry with my heart in my hands and I want to say I'm sorry to all those people who are hurt indirectly or directly.”  As the press conference took place, more than one hundred protestors demonstrated outside Marlins park calling for Guillen to be fired and many have stated they will boycott the Marlins.  While some thought Guillen was contrite in his apology, only time will tell if he will be en masse.

For a rare second segment quick news and notes, The Edmonton Oilers, who finished with the second fewest points in the NHL, won the draft lottery on Tuesday night and claimed the #1 pick for the third consecutive year, The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with top prospect Chris Kreider on a three-year entry-level deal, Colorado’s third leading receiver Paul Richardson suffered a torn knee ligament Monday and will miss the 2012 season and finally, Michigan safety Josh Furman has been suspended from the football team and is due in court April 23 to face one misdemeanor count each of domestic violence, assault and battery and illegal entry.

I would like to wish one of my best friend's and my brother from another mother, Andy Swart in Orlando, FL a very happy birthday!
