Good to see Yoán Moncada running well on an infield single after the way he struggled to run around the bases on yesterday’s mammoth homer.


Great point. Watching the play live, I completely forgot he was hobbling around the bases the last we saw him.


Vaughn and Robert, especially Robert, have really faded in the second half of spring training.


Abreu has also looked pretty awful all spring. His ground ball percentage must be like 60%. I guess we hope those things don’t matter, because: spring training. On an unrelated note, Collins and Rodon look incredible this spring, and I’m really excited about them.

I take the check valve approach spring training data. If a player looks bad, I ignore that information completely because spring training stats don’t matter at all. If a player looks good, I get cautiously optimistic about him. This check valve approach may lack a bit in intellectual consistency but is good for my mental health.


Yep, I tend to do the same thing, and I was kind of making fun of myself about this with my comments about being excited about Collins/Rodon.


“Adam Eaton is a winner. He wins wherever he plays.” I guess that’s other than with the White Sox the first time around … or the Diamondbacks. How about just, “He won a World Series with the Nationals”?

Moncada with a speedy triple. His leg appears fine.
