Player interaction of the Spring, while Dozier was signing a baseball card for me:
Dozier: Do you have a fireplace?
Me: *looking puzzled* No, why?
Dozier: *points to my Cubs hat* Well find one and throw that hat in it!
Lot of game action on Saturday with 3 games at once. I did get to see Wander Javier play a few innings at shortstop, color me not impressed with his lateral movements in the field but does have a strong arm. With the bat, I've said it before but he reminds me of a young Alfonso Soriano, body type, swing, arm, bat speed. Travis Blankenhorn is logging alot of spring innings at 3B and looks good and comfortable.As great as Arraez is with his hit tool, he needs to work on his footwork if he's going to stay at 2B.
