Spooney

Today's Scum-Sentinel article on Mecir states that Spooneybarger will most likely start the season off in the minors. Sounds like an excellent idea...let him get back into the swing of things in Triple AAA...less pressure, less initial demand on his arm. He can be called up as the season progresses. Another nice move by the Marlins.

 

Can't have enough pitching! Right RFerry?

Tim Spooneybarger, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, said he felt no pain Tuesday when he threw off a mound for the first time since September.

Florida's acquisitions have pushed Spooneybarger down the depth chart, but he still has the potential to be the team's best reliever. He should win a roster spot if he shows he's healthy.

Ouch...he didn't need this info. The point remains that you can NEVER have enough pitching.

Am i missing something?

 

I thought Rferry's contention was we had too much relief pitching.

Not sure...I disagree vehemently with RFerry. He was against the Mecir signing. I thought it was another solid move by the Marlins. A team can never have too much pitching. The piece on Spooney in the Sun-Sentinel supports my contention.

If you have 12 Allstar pitchers and you sign another clsoer for 14M is that too much pitching?

Is there anyone else here who doesnt think spoony will be effective this year? He has missed 1.5 seasons, and now will start in the minors. Why should we expect him to be good?

Me.

 

At least I'm not willing to bet the ranch on it.

 

Many pitchers have come back from this surgery and performed BETTER than they did before. At the same time, many have not. Until spring training roles around and we know how well he's recuperating you can't fault the FO for loading up the relief corps.

 

Perhaps he'll be ready for opening day, perhaps mid-season ala AJ, but life goes on for the franchise with or without him. Personally I hope comes back and soon but with TJ you never know.

I agree with 2003. To me the biggest problem Spoony will have is his HEART.

He wants back in so badly he will have to be monitored carefully to bring the arm around correctly. Anyway, it will be great just to see him in Jupiter.

Theres really no reason why spooner shouldnt be ready after a year and a half since his surgery. He had the surgery about 3 months after AJ had his. Sure you never know with these things, theres always setbacks and what not, but spooney's advantage is he isnt a starter so you dont have to worry about throwing 100 pitches. He comes in pitches 20 pitches at worst in an inning and hes out. Down side is a reliever doesnt get 4 days b/w appearances. If i'm the marlins ill give him enough action in the spring to get his arm going. See how hes progressed, but theres no reason why he wont come back throwign well, tommy john unlike the roatator cuff surgery is usuaully pretty successful.

If you noticed there was a comment from Jack after the Mecir signing that after the signing of all the vets in the bullpen this offseason he will not have to "overuse" pitchers this season. This comment was very telling imo. It also tells you why it was smart to sign mecir so we can take our time with spooney. May 1 should be the target.
