The following is what I learned today at fanfest:
  • Matt Treanor has no competition in ST. Brett Hayes and Brad Davis are there just as other bodies. Hayes will most likely make his debut in 2008, and at that time, it could be as a starter or backup. Brad Davis will be the starting catcher in Carolina, with Hayes in Jupiter.
  • Joe Borchard WILL get looks at CF in ST.
  • Josh Johnson is the biggest human being of all time and his arm is fine right now. He will throw again on Monday.
  • Logan Kensing is progressing according to plans. He has begun soft tossing and other activities.
  • Mike Jacobs is 100% healthy.
  • Expect to see Chris Volstad and Gaby Hernandez up no later than September. Both are far more advanced than their rotation mates in Jupiter.
  • Samson really is a scumbag
Thats it, but I figured you would like to know what I gathered from some snooping around :thumbup

I heard the same thing about Gaby, Ramp. He could be up sooner depending on the status of the rotation up here.

And to add to the FanFest Tidbit Database Sergio Mitre is healthy now and will be 100% for spring training. He's already throwing off the mound and his shoulder is sound.

I mention this for a number of reasons, not the least of which is if he has a good spring training and everyone else stays healthy, as Beinfest said today, at the end of spring training it's alot harder to find a starting pitcher than it is a position player (I forget if he specifically said CFer). With six starting pitchers ready to go, we may be in a good position to finally make the move we've all anticipated this off-season.

In the alternative his continued good health may make it easier to transition Nolasco into the closer role or open up other options on the roster.

majors

and thanks for bringing that up 03, I knew I forgot something

I spoke to Serge for about 2 minutes. He's another big guy(atleast 6'4). He looked good and said he feels great. He also is sporting alot of facial hair

What happened with Samson?
he just sucks as a person

I really wanted to smack him

I went to fanfest had a great time. I got a picture with mitre, he looks like a caveman..when I get my pictures onto my computer, I'll share. I got autographs from uggla (2), borchard (2), j. johnson, j. garcia, willis (smudged). I also got to talk with Aaron Boone, cool guy. I'm excited to see him play. He was taking some ground balls (wiffleballs hit by 10-year-olds) and he looked good. Standing there looking at him was so awesome. I was picturing the walkoff homer against the sox in the '03 ALCS game 7.....and the commentary of it. Gave me maaaajor chills. awesome. I saw Kevin Gregg pitching wiffleballs too...he was bringing the heat, striking out the side. Eric Reed has a fly ball hit to him, he dropped it. ha.

I also got endzone (colts) grass (alottttt of it) and confetti from the field. Soon to be onsale on ebay (will post link to it).

I bought chris aguila's batting helmet, a ton of media guides, a couple of jersey cards, lineup cards, cool stuff. I had a great time.
