Spring Training Update!
Our heroes have checked in, though admittedly record hardly matters, at 3-3 so far this Spring. One of the bigger stories out of Clearwater has actually been that of someone who's not playing, as Chase Utley's right knee tendinitis has prevented him from providing his trademark Pacific Surge. Between the white lines, the most impressive bat to date has been Benny Fresh Francisco, who's amassed ten total bases and knocked in five runs.
Another issue lingering around camp is whether Raul Ibanez can recapture some of 2009's Old Spice, when many bloggers and media members irresponsibly speculated he had perhaps been investing in Clear Power Gel. J-Roll has been on the field since day one, looking to recapture the Swagger of his 2007 MVP campaign, when he powered 30 Smooth Blasts beyond the outfield wall. Regardless of spring training, one thing is for sure-- this team has shown the ability to turn the switch when it comes to regular season Gameday.
