Personally as a diehard giant fan.. I love to see them get shelled during ST. Maybe its me being superstious but Giants bad in ST= reg. season gold... kinda like them get all of their bad losses out of the way lol

It's nearing the end of ST and he probly only has a couple more starts.

Pitchers are just building up their arm strength for the most part, and maybe his arm is feeling good and he is just trying to put his pitches in certain spots to test his command.

Maybe he is putting a pitch in an obvious spot in an obvious count, but he just wants to test out his command. I think at this stage for the pitchers who are guaranteed a spot, they just work on things that they are struggling with the most.

Would you be worried if it were a regular season game and it happened? I wouldnt. Bad games happen to the best of pitchers, spring training or not. Unless I have a reason to think he is injured this wouldnt bother me in the least.

So he was working on his off-speed pitches? These are the kinds of things that don't show up in boxscores.

In other ST news Gabe Gross keeps cranking out the HR's, with #7 today. If thsi keeps up he'll have a full time job and either Reed Johnson or Eric Hinske will have to "grab some pine, meat". Frankly, having wither of those two starting (At power hitter positions no less) is embarassing so hopefully we have a rookie who at least has potential to be good.

I hope the Schmidt owner in my league is just as concerned and pulls a quick trigger if he starts the season poorly.

Schmidt had a couple good outings at the start of the year, were you worried about him then?
