Pickoff Moves

Today's Birthdays

Bobby Darwin LAA,LAN b. 1943, played 1962, 1969, 1971. Signed as a pitcher but arm injuries wrecked his career, and so between a brief 1962 callup with the Angels and his 1969 season with a decimated Dodger squad, there was a seven year gap; in that space, he became an outfielder. With the Twins he got the opportunity to be an everyday player, and he responded by hitting for a fair amount of power, but strikeouts and declining average got him shipped to the Brewers in 1975. He spent partial seasons with the Cubs and Red Sox in 1976 and 1977 before retiring.

God Is A Bullet

Frankie was there yesterday from the start. one thing a little bit puzzling and a little bit concerning though is both yesterday and today he's left the field a little bit ahead of the other pitchers. After Bartolo left, but ahead of the others. It would seem they are nursing him a bit.

As for 1B, one of my inital thoughts is i predict it will turn out exactly opposite of what the feeling was all winter, that 1B was to be a question mark for us. After Kendry's winter and what i see of Casey so far, it will turn out to be a very solid position for us this year - other teams will be envious come May and June with what we have there.
