This weather lately is really getting me even more excited for baseball to start.

JV will be mowing down some Red Sox before we know it.

That was a downright WICKED hop. No one in baseball would have gotten out of the way of that one. I had one rip off my collarbone on a bad hop while playing 3B before and those things hurt. Hopefully it is only a few stitches and a shiner.

Same thing with me. I was a horrible third basemen too as far as fielding grounders, but coach liked me there I guess because I had a good arm. I probably would've been a good goalie with all the bruises on my shins and body lol.

Cabrera to be out two weeks - Bless You Boys

His sunglasses helped him a lot. You could see the imprint of ball on [his] glasses. He says he is not on any pain.

That's excellent news. Opening Day is a little over two weeks away so ideally Cabrera will be healed and ready to go then.

Although selfishly, I kinda hope he plays in the exhibition game against Toledo as I will be there.

Good news that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

^ That's hilarious. I saw that story the other day and laughed. The irony is "minor league guy" is actually the Cardinals second highest rated prospect. I get maybe not knowing some random non-roster invitee, but I would expect a Tigers broadcast to be able to identify Nick Castellanos during a game.

His group most certainly did for the mere price of only $2 billion.

If this as a "scratch and sniff" photo , you'd smell linament; lots and lots of linament.

Toronto Star.


Saw a piece on a high school or college player who could do this. He once faced a switch hitter and they kept switching back and forth throughout the at-bat to try and get an advantage. Eventually a rule was implemented - at whatever level of play they were at - that you had to designate your 'side' before the at-bat.

From Wiki: "On January 18, 2012, Moyer signed a minor-league contract (with an invitation to spring training) with the Colorado Rockies, a team that did not exist when he made his MLB debut in 1986"

Winding down Spring Training thankfully. It appears the Tigers have three decisions left to make for the Opening Day roster. Obviously the major one will be whatever happens at second base.

I think Smyly and Below both might make the team. Smyly as the 5th starter and Below as a long reliever in the bullpen. I like Below's story, but I just don't think he has good enough stuff to be an effective starter consistently. I would rather see a prospect with some upside like Smyly fill the role if the Tigers deem him ready.

What I really want and what will happen at second base are probably very different. I think Worth deserves it for many reasons, among them being he can play all three infield positions quite well defensively. Worth is never going to be a great hitter, though he would do just fine for a utility infielder. If the Tigers look solely at merit and not the name on the jersey, it's a very easy decision.
