Morning Dump -- Sunday, February 27th


Forgive me for my tardiness this morning. Yesterday, I watched every pitch of a ten inning Cactus League game and I think it may have given me a hang-over. I wrote quite a bit about the game already, so I’ll spare my expansive readership from another recap. If you didn’t watch it, just know that no one was hurt and that’s all that matters.

I’m having a hard time believing that there is still another month left in Spring Training. I’m ready for baseball season. While it was great to see yesterday’s live action, it was just an exhibition. Two at-bats a piece for Tulo and CarGo wasn’t enough. But, there is nothing to be done about the situation. We must wait out the monotony of March, and, hopefully, there will be a big prize at the end of the rainbow. In the meantime, let’s read some stories together. What do you say?

The Rockies believe their swanky new Spring Training digs will help them win ballgames this year. I think, more than anything else, the shortened travel times in between spring games will benefit the team.


Suddenly, the Rox are wearing monocles and sipping tea, but they still have to win this year.

Woody Paige confused yesterday’s game with Opening Day.

Joe Torre has no problem with the humidor. Hear that San Fran? Ha! Suck it!

If you didn’t get to read them last night, these Jim Tracy quotes are definitely worth a look.

Here is another take on the opening of Salt River Fields.

Tracy Ringolsby has some praise for Bud Selig. If you’ve been following this blog for the last few months, you probably know that I don’t think much of Selig. I’m certain that he turned a blind eye to the steroid epidemic and I truly hate the idea of letting the All-Star game decide home-field advantage in the World Series, but he does deserve a little bit of credit for baseball’s peaceful labor situation — I emphasize “a little bit”.

    Wow, every pitch of a ten-inning cactus league game? Things must be slow in Logan-Land. Well, maybe it’s just a sign of a very true baseball and Rox fan REALLY anxious for the season to get started.

    I do like the hiring of Joe Torre and his reaction to the humidor issue (or non-issue). Straight-shooter, no B.S., been-around-the-block kind of guy. Hopefully he’s got the kahoonies that Selig lacks.

      Got a job to do, Jerry. People were dying to know how Bruce Billings’s one inning of relief work went.
