They all were doing the usual stretching and running when I got there.Then to the fields, pitchers to the pen.Gibson and Pressly threw off the mound along with a few others.I then watched a group take bp.Alex Kirilloff, (sp) was really impressive, he's got a great swing, and should move up quickly.Beautiful day here, come on down!

They don't throw sliders in the dirt during BP, though. :)

 

PS, get well soon!

Everyone hates me because I got cured of paranoia and they didn't.

It's a weekend, which means it's slow at Hammond.I got there late today just as they were wrapping it up.A handful of fans got autographs from Gonsalves and Slegars, and LEN3 interviewed Slegars.Kirilloff continued to put on a show in bp this week sending some balls to the high school and on the road.

If you tell us that this was from Field Five then I'm really gonna get excited. :)

I'll be back in Florida from the 23rd thru the 4th, but the Cubs are in town for ST and Opening Day, so my little time will be spent on the MiLB backfields the rest of the time

There'll be a lot of changes this week with pitchers and catchers having to report tomorrow, and they started today.The 40 man roster is using the stadium locker room now, so some action has switched from the Mil fields down toward the stadium.Also, Grossman and Granite are here early.Slegars and Gonsalves threw on Field one this morning and Garver may have been with them.Those 3 and Granite all left together.No signs of Sano lately.

There;s just no justice, toughest position on the field, catcher.First out for practice and last one's in.Today that was just before noon.No sightings of Fernando Rodney though, so all caps were worn correctly.Roserio and Kepler worked out also.Where did all these fans come from?We were allowed to go to the area next to the bullpen though, which is nice to have tables and benches to sit on out of the sun.

Rodney had a family emergency, but is expected to arrive tomorrow.

Do you realize how easily Fernando could decide to slip through unnoticed? Just a quick twist of the cap for a few moments ... :)

Careful partner, I got a rebuke from Admins about excessive referencing of Rodney's cap situation.

 

It's a quasi-no-no around here.Hopefully, times change.

Has been in the Dominican for his annual 10-day or so hitting workout with Tatis.Will be there when position players report.

Good point. I hope no one takes the occasional comment as referencing his character.

Open house today.Practice lasted til 1:30.No Dozier, who's got kidney stones.Hope he has better luck than I have.I got for more tests wednesday.They couldn't find the stone and inserted a stent, which my doctor now says shouldn't have been done and it's got to go.After these tests I'll lobby to have the kidney removed. 

he gone!
