From Mackey, Willingham pulled with a "very minor ankle tweak." Revere will play LF and bat 8th.

so mauer @ catcher, Span @ cf, and Valencia @ 3rd. Those are the only real locks right now. all the other positions are basically up in the air and dependent on health and other factors

Baker not looking good. Bad location and no movement.

Looks like Baker has given up a couple hits and one walk through 2 innings. How has his velocity been? Back in the 90's yet?

spoke too soon. Grand slam and they are still batting in the second. I guess he doesn't have his good stuff back yet.

Baker is not looking at all sharp. Tossing soft fastballs down the middle and they're getting crushed. I will say that the hitters are looking a lot better than they have in previous spring games I've had the chance to watch.

Because the solution to this team's problems is beaning people? I think you're a little too worked up over a spring game there, my friend.

Rocket bats! Looks like Baker's in mid-season form already.

Hopefully Baker can get back into form soon. At least I got to see Doumit's bomb during lunch.
I bent my wookie...

I got confused when he called Ben Zobrist a mediocre player. He is in reality what people have always perceived Michael Cuddyer to be.

Not sure why, but I 'm not worried about Baker. Assuming his elbow is fine and strong, it'll just take a couple of starts to get back to form. He's going to give up some HR, so that doesn't bother me. Will be good to see more of that movement that he normally has on his pitches. As for Zobrist, he is a pretty good ball player. I believe he's been an All Star. He has hit many HR. And yes, he's a guy who has the Twins number. That's one of those weird things... Hitting someone in a spring game is pretty ridiculous.

DL Baker. Please. There is no way to survive getting mid-upper 80s "fastball" thrown over the middle of the plate.
