Spring Training's such a tease, isn't it? I always get so excited for pitchers+catchers reporting, but then you're stuck with a month and a half of essentially human interest stories in the sports pages as the beat writers try to write about baseball (hey, the season's coming up) when there's nothing, in effect, to write about.

"Jonathan Papelbon Is Dealing With New-Found Fame Pretty OK."

"There Are Three Molina Brothers, And They Love Their Mother."

"Meche Ready For The Limelight."

etc.

But every week will bring a new candidate for the Mets' rotation, latest being Chan Ho Park!

I'm going to Arizona the weekend of March 9 and February couldn't get the f out of the way fast enough. Sadly Im going to a bunch of Giants games and Im not sure how many 'prospects' I might get to see in action. Im hoping for at least a Linecum sighting.

Keep an eye out for burgeoning superstar Dave Roberts!

I need to start studying Ron Shander's Baseball Forecaster. This is the year I get serious about roto, rather than breaking even most of the time and getting lucky every few years.

Dude blows bubbles with his gum mid-steal which is pretty awesome.

that was fast (via cstb):

MESA, Ariz. — The good news on the first day of workouts for Cubs pitchers and catchers Thursday was that Mark Prior and Wade Miller both threw off a mound. The bad news was that Kerry Wood was sidelined with an injury.

Wood bruised his right side when he fell out of a hot tub at his home Monday night. He’ll be sidelined four to five days. His ego was hurt more than his rib cage.

“I’m just getting ready for Spring Training, feeling good,” Wood said. “I [got out of the tub] and landed on my stomach and my chest and didn’t feel too good. It’s that time of year for me.”

Wood, limited to four starts last season because of shoulder problems, had been throwing well the last two months leading up to the start of camp. This was not how he wanted to start Spring Training.

“I’ve got six weeks to get ready,” he said. “I feel like I need 2 1/2 [weeks]. I was ready to go. I’d like to show people I’m ready instead of getting ice packs and people asking me questions. I am ready to go, I will be ready to go.”

LOL

Righetti had no idea how much Zito would alter his motion until seeing No. 75 on the mound.

"I looked at his tapes from Oakland, so that was a waste of time," Righetti said.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Friday, 16 February 2007 17:52 (fourteen years ago) link

I predict a career-ending injury for Zito in Spring Training.

Steve Shasta (Steve Shasta), Friday, 16 February 2007 19:35 (fourteen years ago) link

Keep the faith, Steveo!

does this deserve a siren?

TAMPA, Fla. -- Alex Rodriguez admitted the obvious today, saying his relationship with Derek Jeter has "changed," and it's no longer the tight friendship that it once was a decade ago.

Even though it's long been apparent they have not been tight since Rodriguez took shots at him in an Esquire article seven years ago, Rodriguez has always insisted they were close friends.

But earlier today, as Rodriguez sat in the home dugout here at Legends Field, he expressed an interest to stop all the "lying."

"I think it's important to cut the ----," he said. "I think when you get in all the BS, people start assuming things are worse than what they are, which they're not. But they are obviously not as great as they used to be, when we were like blood brothers."

Rodriguez described their relationship as a "good working relationship. I cheer very hard for him. He cheers for me. And most importantly we're both trying to win a world championship."
