The Paul DePodesta Medal Of Honor . . .

Or PDMOH, was an award I started giving out last year to any player who was successful in some way during every plate appearance, and didn't create any outs on the bases. On Opening Day we had our first two winners of the season, old and new Yankees, Gary Sheffield and Tino Martinez. Sheffield had a single, double, two walks, and went from second to third on a grounder to second, all in four plate appearances, and even threw out a baserunner. Tino homered, doubled, singled, walked, and scored from second on a single.

Meanwhile, after getting two singles and a double in his last three at bats Opening Day, Toby Hall had another single and another double today, before being lifted for pinchhitter Geoff Blum with the Rays down 12-1. Blum struck out, while Hall leaves the game with a five at-bat hit streak and an .833 batting average.
