Some say Anderson is more polished.......Anyone actually observed them and have opinions on their values this year and possibly the next?


With any prospects that are ranked pretty equally its anyones guess on who will be better. Cahill is a great groundball pitcher which is always a plus but his command can be a concern. Anderson is an above avg lefty with very good control....take your pick...they are completely different pitchers and are both high end prospects.

Josh Hamilton has been on a scorching homerun binge of late, knocking in his 7th homer this Spring. In that game, Derek Holland pitched 4 innings, gave up a run on 3 hits and a walk while striking out 4 for the win against the Halos.

Who else is tearing it up? What about Corey Hart. He hit his 7th homer as well and is hitting .379 this Spring.

Mark Teahen continues to hit, with his 7th homer this Spring as well. Don't look now, Alex Gordon has been on a roll of late too, mashing his 6th homer.

Jake Peavy has looked sharp his last couple of outings, including today: 5 scoreless innings with 4 hits and 3 K's. Adrian Gonzalez is also enjoying a fine Spring, a .400 BA and slugged his third HR today.

Cliff Lee and Felix Hernandez got roughed up in a game that Seattle's currently leading, 14-13 in the 8th, a game in which the contract-year man Adrian Beltre hit his first homer of the Spring. Truuuu.

Homer Bailey 6IP / 4H / 2ER / 1BB / 8K

In the spring he has 20K and 4BB in 20.2IP....thats what we've been waiting to see. Whether its ST, minor leagues or major leagues, its been a couple years since he's maintained the Ks while limiting the walks like this.

Here's a name: Joel Piniero.

Here's a number: 1.44 ERA this spring.

Here's 2 reasons: 20K's : 4 Walks this spring.

Here's a better reason: Duncan has gotten him to trust throwing a sinker.

I'm giving Piniero a month on my team to see if any of this is real or not.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
