    Florimon does look good in the field.

    He's got the three walks. Those could dry up in a hurry, once pitchers figure out he's not swinging well.

    Nice outing for Gibson through four. He's facing a pretty good lineup and holding them down pretty well.

    Gibson is looking good today, that sinker is nasty when its on. I hope he takes the 5th spot, Worley is toast and we already have plenty of bullpen lefties to make Diamond expendable.

    I don't understand why they are hanging on to Worley and Bartlett apparently until the last day of Spring Training when both do not look like they will contribute positively at all to this team this year. Why not let them go now and get more at bats/pitches for the younger guys still with the team in Spring Training?

    Also, if Deduno only pitches an inning or so today, that tells me he is likely starting the year in the pen. They are not setting him up at all to be the fifth starter with the way they are using him in games.

    Bartlett with a hit.
    Bet he's glad he's got that behind him.
    I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.

    Sounds like Gibson looked really good today. Gladden made it sound like the pitch he gave up the tater on was pretty decent as well, just that Adams is a good low ball hitter and it broke into his swing zone. For a guy in a competition for the final rotation spot, Gibson had a really nice outing.

    Good to see Neshek is still hanging around with someone, he looks the best I have seen him in years not just throwing sliders. He is about my all time favorite twin that delivery is just so funky.

    Can't help pulling for him. He was so much fun to watch in 2007 and 2008. And he has always been fun to follow on Twitter -- such devotion to collecting (and to sharing). And congrats to him and his wife on the recent birth of their son.

    I wish Gibson would throw less pitches. 73 in 4.1 comes out to 100+ in 6. That is not horrible especially since today's St. Louis line up was legit. It would be nice to see him shave that total so he could have real shot at making it into the 7th.

    Pinto looked good to me. Threw out two runners (but only one was called).
