I don't pay attention to spring stats at all. See who won jobs, and health issues, but stats, no.

Bob Welch won 27 and a CY, after posting a 30 spring era.

Candy Maldonado and Russell Branyan have lead in spring hrs.

Point taken, but there are plenty of anecdotal items that go the other way. The season Howard hit 10 bombs in ST people said it's just spring training, and then boom, he lead the majors almost out of nowhere. When Thome came back from injury he kept having 2HR games in ST and had a late ADP....so people that jumped on his ST numbers got what basically amounted to a top 15 fantasy guy that year. Uggla had a nice ST one year too when he was an unkown.


Anyway...Kouz hit a bomb today. Nice. Clayton Richard pitched 2 scoreless, and Alexei stole a base.

I do know that the Man, the Myth and the Legend known as Mike Jacobs went deep this afternoon. 45 HRs here we come.

can we make a rule that a starting pitcher has to go at least 3 innings before we say they look "sharp" or "good" or "awesome" or "sick"?

Three scoreless frames apiece between Volquez and Cueto. Cueto was much sharper though. Volquez struck out Longoria looking in his final inning of work with runners at 2nd and 3rd. Homer Bailey had a strong inning of work and Jerry Hairston hit a Grand Slam. Reds beat Rays 7 to 0.

I bring this up only because he's a very interesting guy to watch this spring, but Corey Hart was 2-2 with a HR and a BB. Obviously this guy could be a fantasy monster if he could put it all together all season long (.300/25/25 type potential with good RBI numbers in the the 5 spot). His spring season will be one of the more interesting ones to me after he faded so badly in September last year. I want to see him jump out to a good start and carry some momentum into opening day.
