Spring Training So Far

Stanton hurt. Vasquez hurt. Cogs hurt. Anibal hurt.

 

JJ, Ricky, Volstad all look terrible.

 

Hensley and Mujica look bad, Choate and Dunn look worse.

 

West same old slug. James is helpless.

 

Best pitching is by two guys who won't make the ml roster.

 

Defense sucks, Hanley has FIVE errors.

 

Hopefully, everything will turn around in the last two weeks before opening day.

 

Hope is a wonderful thing.

I think it would help if the starters were actually starting in more back to back to back games. We've been to 3 games and haven't seen our complete starting IF play in any of them. With a new defensive scheme in place they need to gel as a unit. The OF is understandable with Cogs coming off surgery and Stanton hurt, but there is nothing wrong with the IFers starting games even if they only go 3 or 4 innings.

Was thinking the same thing. Is Edwin babying the starters because Stanton got hurt early?

Rodriguez's plan, though, is not without some concern. He admits he is worried about his players getting burned out if they start increasing their workload now.

 

 

:lol

 

Poor babies. they're playing baseball, fer chrissakes. Workload?

 

Get real. They play about 200 days a year for 3 hours a day. Most of which time is spent standing around waiting for something to happen or sitting in the dugout or bullpen.

 

So far, we know that Edwin routinely lies about injuries (Sanabia, for instance) and now he's worried about burn-out? In spring training?

 

This is the first thing that has me concerned about this season. I'm perfectly willing to discount a bunch of games where rarely is an inning pitched by anyone who will start the season, where Buck isn't catching, where Dominguez isn't at 3B, and where the entire outfield is manned by scrubs, most of whom won't be on the 25-man roster.

 

Yeah, yeah, the 162 game season is a grind and it takes its toll on everyone. But, when the manager starts blathering about "burnout" in March I start to wonder whether he has any clue about the job he's supposed to do.

It's absolutely understandable that the starters are performing poorly based on the day on, day off routine. If anyone here plays golf, as I do, then you know that if you only play at the weekends it can mean great inconsistency, whereas if you get 3 or 4 times a week, you do start performing better.

Maybe Edwin just understands that Spring Training is rather irrelevant, and you're just one of the many fans already overreacting.

 

The starters will start playing more regularly, now that cuts are already being made.

Overreacting?

 

I don't think so. Just reacting to idiocy. Maybe Edwin and the beat guys decided that they needed something to talk and write about.

 

 

 

I don't see the idiocy in the comments.

There are very few spots on the team that are open. The starters are well-known, for the most part.

 

No team really throws their guys out there all-out from the get-go in Spring Training, so I'm not sure why you're so shocked with this apparent "idiocy."
