marquis is working on a curveball. he hopes it could lead to more strikeouts if he is consistent with it. it would also be a change of pace pitch for him since most of his other stuff was usually thrown at about the same speed.
ankiel is expected to pitch wednesday against the marlins in a B game. he has had some control problems. not throwing to the backstop bad, but walking people. right now they are saying it is related to his mechanics.
i think gall only makes the club if walker starts the season on the DL. dont teams usually only carry five outfielders? edmonds, walker, sanders, cedeno, and taguchi is five plus mabry can also play there. tony will keep taguchi on the roster because he can play CF. cedeno's saving grace is that he is a switch hitter. i want to see what gall can do but i dont see how we would have room for him unless walker is on the DL which i dont want to happen.
