    Bard has to turn it around fast but since he has options, it's probably too late.. Still I hope he returns to his former 2011 self. We need him this year.

    What does "Abraham" mean by this:"They are using their regulars today and again on Sunday against the Phillies in Clearwater." Where's Bradley? Management hasn't made a decision yet!

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia is DH'ing today.

    "I'm not a DH," he said on Friday. "I don't want to be a DH."

    Guess what, Jarrod. You do what's best for your team. The manager will make the decisions without consulting you.

    Unfortunately, looks like a preview to the opening day lineup. Still would like to see Bradley in there though.

    Farrell on his DH without David Ortiz: "We feel like this will be a rotating thing rather than one person just being a regular DH."

    Moving Chapman to closer? 100 MPH out of the pen? Smart move by Reds

    Bad move by Ben with Bard

    Allen Webster cruised through a 9-pitch first. 4S 96mph, heavy 2S 93-94, one tight slider. As advertised.

    Beckett & DiceK were a real slow pace. 

    One thing you never hear is, say for the notoriously slow paced Bos/NY series for example, is how many ads that they have to cram in.

    Buchholz works around a lead off walk and gets out of the inning unscathed!

    Iggy can sure flash the leather, but he needs to work on making sound throws to 1st.  Not many ever talk about his accuracy to 1st.  It's nowhere near outstanding.  Needs work!
