Hi everyone. Thanks again for your input!
I haven't been able to watch any spring training games recently... dying to know how everyone looks. I wanted to hear from you all to see what you all thought. I can look at the box scores, but when it's only a few innings it's hard to say. I'd much rather hear from you to see what you thought actually watching them.
The pitcher I'm most curious/intrigued about is Thomas Diamond. I saw he did pitch today. Last year in the minors his numbers looked amazing. I'm wondering how he looked today. Do you think there's a chance he can compete for a spot this year... also, is he a rule 5 guy who needs to stay on the roster, or was he truly a free agent who can be sent to the minors?
Also, Randy Wells, and Jeff Samardzija... Is Wells' sinker looking as good as it did last year? Did Samardzija pick up a third pitch or is he still throwing fastballs constantly? Is Gorzelanny looking consistent?
I know it's early, but again I haven't had the chance to see any of the games and I'm just wondering, based on what you've seen, how everyone looks.
I guess I DID see what you all thought of Carlos Silva...
One more thing... Mitch Adkins seems to have had great success in the minors, yet is always overlooked when it comes to considering the future. Is there a reason why? Is his stuff really poor? I never understood how he could have better numbers than others in the minors at a higher level and yet not be considered as highly when openings are available.
