    The worst lineup in baseball is in kick ass mode again. At least 3 runs ina wind blown first inning. And an oppoisite field homer for RyHo.

    Despite today’s 5 run (combined) 1st inning, they still don’t make baseball pinball games like they used to.

    People not watching this game oughta make an effort to see the highlight of the running catch Revere makes in the third. Shows what speed can do.

    All important Shane Victorino update…

    Now 0-11, 3 BBs.

    You give us 22 minutes, we DO give you the world.

      Stop hating on Shane.

      I was glad he was moved last year.

      Solely because it got some of the rigor mortis out of the line up.

      I was happy to see any one go. Wish it had been about 5 other guys before him though.

      I will goto my grave thinking Victorino and Ruiz were the 2 most important position players in the 2008 and 2009 world series teams.
      And the 2010 and 2011 disappointment teams.

    Spring training, of course, gets downplayed. And the examples validating that far outweigh the signs of positivity that come out of it. Typical of a good team is a mediocore spring, good example posted by Chuck the other day on the Phils ’93 and ’08 results. But if you really pay attention, which takes an awful lot of work with so many players around, sometimes, maybe in retrospect, a team or player having a good spring is something you can at least look back on.

    Cliff Lee threw to the tune of possible career ending mediocrity in 2007, but a sterling 2008 exhibition season capaulted him to a the 5th starter in the rotation CY 22-3, 2.54 ERA epilogue a year later. Cliff’s routine results today prompted me to look back at that spring, and I found this blogger review of an EARLY 2008 spring game. Masa Kabayashi is referenced far more favorably, and Masa continued a once good career decline that had him out of the game by 2010. Here’s that bloggers assessment of Lee.

    As an avid Indians fan, I was disappointed that the team decided to start pitcher Cliff Lee. He was unable to pitch effectively through just one inning. My best guess after seeing his spring training performance, is he will probably end up getting the 5th spot on their pitching rotation. But if he doesn’t improve, they’ll probably try to trade him or release him from the team. On the other hand, I also got the opportunity to see Cleveland’s brand new off-season acquisition, reliever Masa Kobayashi. It was cool to see his stuff, considering I have never seen him pitch before. I’m sure it’ll give the Indians more of an edge because nobody has faced him in the MLB before

    Stutes today = progress, nothing special. Ran a couple deep counts, didn’t walk anyone.

    Cloyd enhanced Lopez’s shot at a long man position. A young pitcher tryuing to make a club has to do better than he’s doing, spring or not. It’s only spring is fine for the Papelbons of the world, but when you have something to prove, his lines to date won’t cut it.
