Doubtful that Utley will start.

Isn't there anyone else besides those three? My guess is that Garcia will play more than the other two. I don't even think Crisp will make the team.

i doubt he wont make the team.. that would mean Cleveland would only carry 1 reserve OF.. no way.. esp. when he's hitting .377 in the spring 20-53, 9 runs, 11 Ribeyes, and 5 SB. If he doesnt make the team with those spring numbers, Eric Wedge is a moron. Alex Escobar (his comp.) has the same amount of hits and at bats, but less RBI, less runs, and less SB's. Both will make the team.

Broussard plays OF, too, so they could keep Escobar and have 5 OFs. Either way, Garcia's getting the most time early in the year, unless an Indian OF is injured.

Don't plan on Utley starting for the Phils.

yea but you just cant deny those numbers and what Crisp did last year on the basepaths. I havent read anything about a possibility of him making the team, only things about him pushing Escobar out of the reserve outfielder spot. And I know Rototimes is the law on these things, but they have Crisp and Escobar as the resevre OF's and not even Broussard as a backup. And you just have to wait for the annual Matt Lawton breakdown.. so Crisp will play later.

Why can't I deny those numbers? IT'S SPRING TRAINING, JUSTIN! Broussard isn't going to lead the AL in slugging percentage during the regular season, and Crisp isn't going to to hit .377. He's a no-stick bench player, who will hit about .270 with almost no walks and no extra base hits ( FOUR HRs in almost 600 ML plate appearances just ain't going to cut it!) His low OBA will limit his ability to rack up SBs, because you can't steal 1B. There's a reason why the Indians brought in Ludwick and Piatt for try-outs. Crisp stinks. He's gone as soon as Escobar or Sizemore are ready.
