Shoot, I didn't notice you there Thrylos, I was standing in the shade of the trees behind the dugout for most of that game. Was standing behind the gun when Hermsen was throwing, and was also disappointed with his control and velocity, but he does get some good movement. TK is an absolute joy to listen to talking with his guys. Tommy Watkins is also great, gave me an assist on getting Sano's autograph the day before, then went out of his way to say hi again during this game. Most impressive guy I watched in camp hitting during games was Max Kepler. I'm no scout, but you notice when every at bat you watch he's lacing a line drive somewhere for a hit. Agree that Gruver looked impressive. Sano didn't play the day before while I was watching either, but earlier in the week got to watch a few at bats and some batting practice. He was the good luck charm coaching 1B this game though, think the fellas put up 3 or 4 runs (with the snowball fight assist from the Orioles) while he was out there.
