    Oh, and Jamie Moyer won a spot in the Rockies rotation.

    I don't understand why more people don't copy the mechanics of Moyer. Dude has lasted forever and still manages to get outs consistently.

    So Michael Pineda bombed in his latest spring outing (well, really, he's bombed all spring) and suddenly he's saying that he's had shoulder discomfort for awhile now.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiight.

    Young guys (and players in general, especially when managers talk about the possibility of still having to make the team) will conceal injuries and not want to use them as an excuse unless it becomes a serious issue. Pineda has enough of an issue to be starting the season on the DL (which is why you can never have too much starting pitching) and he might even need surgery.

    Joba Chamberlain had the same issue Pineda is having now late in the 2008 season and he missed 24 games.

    Moyer is amazing, and an inspiration.

    Also, fun fact: he is going to the Rockies. The Rockies weren't even a team that existed until 7 years after Moyer was drafted.

    So yeah, I'm an Orioles fan - okay, looking forward to a summer of baseball.

    Usually a long depressing summer.

    Maybe this year will be different.

    I don't care about the stats. I'd love to see Moyer in the HOF. I think he's awesome.

    Not sure what to expect from the Twins


    spring training was pretty quiet on the Mauer/Morneau injury front(which is good news)


    more good news that Drew Butera didn't make the team out of spring training


    the bullpen is going to the big question mark


    they'll probably do better than last year, but 3rd place is my guess

    He'll definitely get an exhibit, even if he's not enshrined.

    oh and i would like to say that contact drills in rtts are just fucking retarded bullshit.

    if i hit a homerun with sweetspot contact and perfect time, do not fail me with a fair ball with poor contact. i had a liner to center field count as a foul ball.

    in a discipline test i had a cc sabathia look a like throw me almost 30 straight balls.

    The Rangers look fucking sick, I do think they will be in the series once more, and hopefully win this time.

    The contact test is weird but I haven't had that many problems with it.

    The discipline test however can pretty much eat it.

    The pitchers in the disc test seem to pretty much follow the standard pitching AI, so if you swing at the first few hard sliders, that's all you're going to get until you prove you can lay off.

    And CC's slider in particular is pretty disgusting so yeah, that doesn't sound fun.

    I love love love batting to death in RTTS, but sometimes it can get way too frustrating.


    *edit*

    also I am convinced that the best pitch in the game is an arm side slider. period. doesn't matter if it catches plate, high, low, whatever. I'm not sure I've seen the AI ever hit it, and there is no pitch they will whiff on any more. For some reason they just swing way out of the zone for it.

    They do similar with an arm side screwball, but the problem is if you miss with a screwball, you're going to go have to fish it out of the Gulf of Mexico.

    I don't because it's due to injury instead of something hilarious

    Much like how I don't enjoy Sam Fuld missing time due to going under the knife

    I'm gonna laugh at AJ Burnett being on the DL to start the season because that was pretty ridiculous.

    i never said I would laugh

    i just said I am enjoying


    what's the deal? Are they hoping Pineda will snap out of it some time between today and friday to make him #2? Why not just move to Kiroda or someone

    I'm fairly certain Joe already knows the order, probably just hasn't submitted it to whatever website/press thing that puts that information out there.
