Pictures, Videos and Comments from Spring Training 3/15a

I just got back from watching the minor leaguers play a couple of games.  We are leaving at 6:00am tomorrow and have the game tonight, so I am doing a midday update and one tonight.

Notes:

  • Mejia crushed the ball during BP.  Clint Robinson and him seem to be the biggest two players on the team
  • Moose took some fielding at 2B, but played 3B in the game.  He made a nice grab at 3B in the game
  • Minor leagues are bunting and stealing like crazy.  Don't know if it was what they were to work on today, but it seemed a little obsessive.
  • Theiot seems to have a nice arm at C.  Was getting about 1/2 of people stealing
  • Dimensions of the minor league practice parks are 320-365-400-365-320
  • Games were played on pitch counts.  I saw anywhere from 2 to 5 outs per inning.
  • Myer had a nice two bagger.

Mexican place off Bell Ave with good and cheap burritos.  The Machaca ones were outstanding.
