Slide Notes:
  • Lincoln has resumed a throwing program as of Sunday.
  • Serguey Linares finally has arrived in camp after 2 weeks of visa issues.
  • Bay will play, as a DH, against Minnesota.
  • McCutchen, Walker and Bixler are going to get a longer look in ST.
  • 75% of Eldred's hits this spring are home runs and he is battin .500.
My Notes:

I am still out of town and can only post sporadically. I will do my best to do some creative stuff over the next couple days including some excepts from an interview by Doug Strange on XM MLB Live with Ronny "Night Train" Lane.
