Yes, a horrendous result against Toronto in spring games this year. Of course, spring stats and results mean almost nothing. Time to shake off the bad from spring training and focus on winning starting Thursday.
Still, after last season, seeing the bullpen blow good size leads in 4 of the final 5 spring games just puts doubt in the back of my mind. Today, it was the real relievers who got hit around. Neris for 2 in the sixth and then Alvarado torched in the 7th. I would like to have been able to stash Watson at the alternate site for awhile. We remain short on LH pitchers in the bullpen.
We should see the final moves needed to clear spaces on the 40 man roster and the resolution of the centerfield situation to open the season within the next 48 hours.
