Spring stats not totally irrelevant

Would you rather him give up four homers in an outing, like Teheran did last spring against Detroit? Nothing wrong with a young pitcher gaining confidence, is there?

    I like our club. But none of this counts yet. There is a reason we’ve held on to Teheran through as many offers as we’ve had for him from other teams. The White Bear has been crushing balls. Fuggla even hit one out today. I think we should start referring to him as the Blind Hog.

    And did you notice what Edward Salcedo did today? First 2 ABs of spring, 2 HRs, including the game-winner. I think the Francisco-Johnson two-headed third baseman monster will be a one-season phenomenon.

  3. I wouldn’t get too excited about Salcedo. He’s put up Andres Thomas-type numbers in Single A to this point.

    Everybody’s an expert in the Time Of Twitter.

  5. atl, Yeah, but Salcedo’s only 21 and still filling out his frame. And I’m excited about Gattis’ 1.200 spring-training OPS as well.

    And if spring stats ARE relevant, then I’m really worried about Medlen and somewhat concerned about Kimbrel.
