Who’s psyched to watch some spring baseball?

A few thoughts:

- Sisco put a beautiful swing on the fastball he hit for a HR.    Short to the ball and effortless.    He also had a really good AB vs. a lefty pitcher his next time up, taking two very close pitches on his way to a walk.    I was disappointed he didn’t get a third at bat.   He looked great.   

- Díaz really does look like he put on 25 pounds over the winter.   He looks like a beast.   

- Loved seeing Mullins wreaking havoc on the bases and getting good jumps in the OF.

- Jace Peterson did a lousy job at 2B, making an ill-advised throw to 3B on a relay that allowed the batter to advance to 2B, and later making a very high feed to Martin on a potential DP that caused Martin to throw awkwardly and off line.  

- Núñez almost threw a ball away on a routine grounder in the first, then was slow making a throw to 2B when the batter was advancing on the ill-advised throw by Peterson referenced above.   

- Reinheimer and Jackson turned a tough DP and Jackson made a very strong throw on the play.    

- I only saw the first six innings, but none of the pitchers impressed me.  

Biggest issue of the day was the infield defense. Of course we were missing some guys. 

The pitching was nothing special.

Thanks for the summary. I’m thinking that EY JR will help Mullins’ baserunning instincts.

Did you see yesterday's game vs. Phillies?  In addition to Diaz' impressive display:

Escobar impressed with hitting again (2 RBI) plus a nice catch and throw to Wynns at plate to nab runner trying to score.  Hyde's relay drill paying off early.
