Today’s Spring Training News

Oscar Night

In the spirit of tonight’s Academy Awards, @scottmerkin asked Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton who they would want to play them in a movie. Jose said teammate Melky Cabrera and Eaton opted for actor Adam Sandler. What do you think?

Hoop Dreams

A reporter approached Jimmy Rollins today and started chatting with him about his basketball skill. “What’s your shot like?” the shortstop was asked. Rollins replied with a laugh while imitating his jump shot: “Not Steph Curry-like, that’s for sure.”

Quote of the Day

Chris Sale on pitching coach Don Cooper (via Paul Sullivan, Chicago Tribune), pictured above with righty Mat Latos.

“Coop is the ringleader, and he has had a long time to collect himself and know what’s going on. And there’s a reason he has done what he has done over the course of his career.

“And we all love him too, man. He’s fun to be around. He’s easy to be with. He’s a guy you’d see every day and never get sick of. And there’s something to be said for that too.”
