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

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.

Cecil had 4 strikeouts in 2 innings today. I wonder if he'll make the team.

i actually think hes fairly capable of 30/30 but .300? i just dont see that happening.


.295 in 2007 (505 ABs)
.286 up until September in 2008 (514 AB)
.300 minor league hitter between AA and AAA.

I'm not suggesting I think it's likely, but I don't think it's unreasonable to see him luck into a few hits in a given year and hit .300. I think .300 is more likely than 30 HR (not a ton a raw power) or 30 SB (doesn't draw enough walks) given his style of play.
