Just In From the Desert

A win, a very palpable win!  The Tribe notched their first victory of the spring, 3-2 over the Royals.

Hot Corner:  Neither contender saw action today.

#5Kevin Slowey started and scattered 4 hits over 2 innings.  Scottie Barnes pitched clean ball over the 6th and 7th innings (2 H, BB, K).  So, to sum up, all five of the candidates have thrown a pair of scoreless frames in his first spring appearance.  Love it.

Left Of Center:  Two words: Shelley Duncan.  Kid is just mashing.  Duncan (.429) crushed his second mammoth homerun of the spring and leads all of baseball with 6 ribs.  He is way out in front on this one.  Matt LaPorta (.000, 0-1) has looked flat out awful, including an 0-4, 2 K performance in yesterday's "B" game.  Felix Pie played, but did not bat.

Out ThereAaron Cunningham (.333) singled in three trips, as did Ezequiel Carrera (.333), but Zeke added a stolen base and a run scored.  Russ Canzler's flirtation with perfection ended as he came back to earth with an 0-for-3 effort.  He's still hitting .400.  Ryan Spilborghs (.000, 0-3, K) has fallen to the back of the pack.

Bench MeCristian Guzman (.250) was 0-for-2 with walk, but did shown some versatility by sliding to second base during the middle innings.  Jose Lopez (.750) continued to impress with a hit and a run scored, plus a bit of time at the hot corner.

Mightier Than the SwordChris Ray (9.00) allowed KC's only two runs on a moonshot from the kid batting 9th.  Who the F is Irving FaluJeremy Accardo, on the other hand, notched his second scoreless inning (H, K) and is looking like the cream of the crop thus far.  Nick Hagadone (0.00) also recorded a clean inning and, most importantly, has yet to issue a walk this spring.

The Wahoos get right back at it tomorrow at 3:05p, taking on the Angels in a game that will be carried on the MLB Network.

I hope some emotionally broken chick who looks like Charlize comes back to my home town ready party on and stir the pot.

Doody And the Yeast

All of this seems oddly familiar.  Especially the last 5 seconds.  ;-j
