Owens, CF; Cabrera, SS; Thome, DH; Dye, RF; Swisher, 1B; AJ, C; Fields, 3B; Quentin, LF; Ramirez, 2B. Danks pitching.
Sorry, I haven’t posted much over the past few days. Between not feeling well (the cold everyone down here has had all spring claimed me as well) an driving up and down I-10, I haven’t had much time to blog.
After John Danks today, the rest of our pitching for the spring stacks up as:
Contreras on Monday, Buehrle Tuesday, Floyd Wednesday, Masset on Thursday (get-away day), Danks on Friday in Oklahoma City and Contreras on Saturday against the Mets in the Civil Rights Game in Memphis.
Sunday, we’ll work out in Cleveland at 3 pm and then Monday they’ll count.
The last week is always a tough time in spring training. Everyone is ready to leave, in part to get out of camp, in part out of excitement to get the season going. Players are nervous, at those who are still on the bubble about making the team. It’s time to start focusing on Opening Day.
We officially announced today that this year’s statue unveiling (on July 20 by the way) will be of Harold Baines. No one is more deserving.
Harold will join Minnie, Pudge, Billy, Louie, Nellie and the Old Roman in the U.S. Cellular Field outfield.
