Thought we could use a non-Cubby and non-fantasy baseball thread. Random Spring Ramblings: TV Broadcasts: Seeing more home team broadcasters than normal because I've been watching some of the MLB Net spring training broadcasts. Some of these guys suck. I get that it's the home broadcast team but you are also the national telecast that day and it okay to talk SOME about the other team. Exception, the Phillie team (Kruk) is doing pretty good today especially considering they are a National League broadcast team doing a game with the American League Yanks. Maybe cause Kruk has done more national games. Anyway, gotta give them some props. Yankee Stuff: Gleyber Torres (thank you Cubs) will be in the starting infield by next year if he keeps up anywhere near the play he had in the fall league and his first full spring training (over .400 in both). Greg Bird looks great after missing an entire season with a shoulder tear (.439/6 HR). Gary Sanchez going just like last fall. Going to be an interesting bunch of kids to watch. Probably only an 85-90 win team with bubble playoff ceiling but building for something. Starting pitching past Tanaka is YUGE question. Twins: Ack. Good grief, about all the sports guys here can come up with is that this is the year that Byron Buxton "arrives" and makes an impact. He's hitting .235. Yeah, only spring training but still. Also, can Hughes comeback from injury stories. Not much else to talk about. Maybe, how much will Sano weigh? They are going to lose a lot of games and be boring doing it (again). Wondering how attendance is going to be? How many people will show up just to see if Dozier might homer or if the zillion dollar 1st baseman will hit a soft .260? Washington: Jason Wirth's hair and beard are reaching even more epic proportions after a winter of more growth .
