Tuesday night at 5:15 p.m. Pacific Time. That's when I was able to get serious about baseball. At 5:15, Ken Harvey accepted, for the first time in his major league career, a chance in the outfield. Made a nice running grab, too. With that momentous event out of the way, I was able to get down to the serious business of watching four of baseball's most promising young pitchers: Pittsburgh's Oliver Perez, Detroit's Jeremy Bonderman, the Cubs' Carlos Zambrano, and (the dark horse in the race) Baltimore's Daniel Cabrera.
