Quote from the series preview

Dexter Fowler's new catch phrase should be "speak softly, and carry a big stick". Fowler thumped Yankee pitching for six hits, four for extra bases, and scored five runs. Jose Altuve could do no wrong on opening day, he has come back down to earth - collecting one over the last two games. Robbie Grossman currently has a .733 OPS in the two hole through three games.
