He's only faced lefties so far this spring and has a 12.46 ERA. Edwin put him in right now to face Cora, and on the first pitch he ripped a liner into the outfield. I do not overreact, and I'm not doing so right now. But come on! He hasn't had a single good outing and I think by now he should be pitching halfway decent.

It's not over-reacting to be worried about Choate at this point. Those who feel confident with him need to remember that this is a guy who was never really that good to begin with. He's a journeyman who had two solid years in Tampa, but that is all they were- solid.

Choate has always been good against LHB and absolutely dreadful against RHB. We should do well to keep this in mind as the season starts. The only thing that changed over the last two seasons was he was used as a LOOGY; prior to that, he had faced as many RHB in his career as LHB, to predictable results.

He's always been pretty good at what he is; a lefty specialist.

Today was the third time I've seen him in person this spring, as I recall in the first two he faced quite a few righties, but today was strictly a lefty-lefty situation.

Cora hit a decent pitch it found a hole, that will happen.

I know everyone can throw statistical rhetoric around, but just ask yourself would you rather have Choate in the pen or Pinto/Tankersley? For now I'll take Choate.
