Boxsore Watch

Some (less than) interesting observations from scouring the boxscores of the first week of spring training baseball...

Johan Troubles

Johan Santana 2 IP, 4 hits, 3 runs versus the Cardinals on Friday. This is obviously a harbinger of things to come.

Ex-Phillie Watch
Indian Danny "NTAC" Sandoval hit a homer off Astro Geoff Geary. Unfortunately, Buffalo is in the International League and Round Rock is in the PCL, so these two may not face each other again. That should be a big disappointment for all baseball fans.

Fish-tastic
Alejandro De Aza is poised for a breakout year. After not homering in 144 at-bats last year with Florida, De Aza is leading the Grapefruit League in long balls. He has two in two games. He should immediately jump up on two lists: your rankings for fantasy outfielders and the steroid testing roster.

Phils Watch
The newbies are looking good: Feliz is 4-7 and Bruntlett is 3-7. Greg Dobbs is also hot, going 3-5 with a homer and 4 RBI in 3 games. Other Phils homers have been by Howard and future Iron Pig Casey Smith.

Keystone Cup - Florida Edition
The Phils have won the last two Keystone Cups, the fictitious trophy handed out on this blog to the winner of the season series between the Phils and Bucs, but are facing stiffer competition this spring. The teams split their first two meetings this spring, with the Phils evening up the series yesterday with a 5-4 win. After the game, Ian Snell, who pitched three scoreless innings, had this to say, "I own Ryan Howard now." I'm assuming this is part of a little friendly banter between the two, but to be safe, I'm going to make sure Ed Wade didn't actually sell Ryan Howard to Ian Snell at some point during this tenure as Phillies GM. These two trash-talking teams renew their rivaly on the tenth.

As insignificant as Danny Sandoval was as a Phillie, I will never forget that No-Talent Ass-Clown.

Eaton pitches today. I'll be following his spring closely, because as much as I hate him, I understand we need him. Benson won't be ready to start the season, Blackley is a longshot, and the Durbins really aren't that good. Eaton has had success in the past, just not really as a Phillie, so I'm hoping he can somewhat bounce back and at least turn in a 5 era, which is sometimes all you need to win with the Phils offense behind you. He's needs to give 6 innings every time out though, too many short outings last season that killed the bullpen.

Where can we easily get 'B' Game Box Scores?

Clearly Johan's troubles are just beginning... I'll say it again... Pat the Bat will own him. I might even up my projections on Pat, just because this is a contract year. He'll rival Howard in power numbers this year... only to trick someone into paying him way too much for a 30 HR, 95 RBI, .250 AVG next year. OK maybe not... but still it'll be a fun year if everyone stays healthy.

You know Round Rock, TX has this store with the most kick ass donuts ever. They use like an entire egg per donut. Tasty little fuckers indeed.

2.0 IP, 5H, 3R, 3ER, 0BB, 2K, 1HR 13.50 ERA...
