The CAA men's tournament is this weekend, the CAA women's tournament is next weekend and there's some prep work in between. Going to be a busy stretch and I'm doing my best to keep up with what's going on baseball wise. I feel out of touch but also feel like I haven't missed anything.
Maybe the JimBow "distraction" was a good thing because it gave us something to talk about while nothing happened.
I'm not certain, barring injury or trade, anything will happen. Does anyone have any doubt the final roster will look something like this?
C - Flores, Nieves
IF - Johnson, Hernandez, Guzman, Zimmerman, Belliard, Harris
OF - Dunn, Milledge, Dukes, Willingham, Kearns
P - Lannan, Olsen, Cabrera, Zimmermann, Hill, Hanrahan, Colome, Rivera, Shell, Bergmann, Hinckley, Young
Maybe Leonard Davis or Bernadina in that last outfield spot if they can find a taker for Kearns? Martis in Hill's spot if health continues to be an issue? Anything else?
D. Young? No way. Can't get in shape.
Langerhans? Hate to see him go but where does he fit?
Wily Mo? As I've said before, I really wish he was good. Seems like a fine guy. Can he go to AAA? Does he have options left?
Is Colome a serious contender to close? I can't believe I just typed that.
I guess the bombshell of the spring will be a Johnson trade if one happens. At this point, I'm sort of switching gears on my thoughts about him. I'd like to see them keep him and hope this is the magic year where he actually stays healthy. Seeing Zimmerman, Dunn, Johnson and Dukes come to the plate in succession (but maybe not in that order) could be a lot of fun.
