Gotcha.

I like Greene and wonder if they’ll make room for him.

Kind of tight for him to make it for OD but I think we will see him in the majors this season.

Who’s Connor Greene?

J/K, sort of.   

Haha, you really haven't been following spring training very closely this year, have you. ;)

I had no idea who he was when the Orioles signed him and invited him to spring training, but I like the stuff from what I've seen in his TV outing as well as his stat tracker info.

Come on man, you know I meant Connor Greene.

Just to make sure, I googled Tyler Greene, and he played for the Cardinals on their 2011 WS team, so I was thinking,” when did we pick this guy up, and why is Tony excited about him?”

So yeah, for a bit I wasn’t sure at all...

He’s making a strong case, including today.

Failed starter with good stuff who could become an asset as a reliever..not exactly an unusual narrative.

Certainly prefer to give him a chance over guys like Lakins and Sulser..we know they are a dime a dozen guy.  Maybe Greene can be more than that.

Steve Melewski gives us an account of Gray Fenter's experience with the Cubbies.

“Whether I made the team or not, my main goal of spring was to basically walk in and be the biggest sponge I could be,” he said. “I wouldn’t say there was necessarily one main guy that helped me. As a collective, everyone was very open and honest about where my stuff fit and played and what I would need to do to get guys out at the big league level.”

The 90-day clock begins. We'll see! I think it's clear Elias is extremely concerned about innings. Even Sulser can go multiple innings, so that probably had something to do with it. 

No GM is perfect, he took a calculated risk and missed with it (so far), but overall it just means our depth has significantly improved.

I’m pretty bummed out we’re losing Pop.    That was an unforced error.   I do like what we’ve seen from Wells and hope we keep him.   Scelorer didn’t impress me when I watched him a bit last week.

We all make mistakes. He screwed this one. If Wells pans out then it won’t feel as bad, but it’ll still be justifying a decision that was always puzzling. 

Wells could win the CY and it would have zero to do with the stupid decision making to let Pop be exposed.
