The first game of Spring Training 2010 is only 5 days away. There really hasn't been a whole hell of a lot of news coming out of Maryvale.
Logan Schafer sufferred a groin strain yesterday. Despite being a non-roster player, he was expected to make an impact this spring. Schafer was the Brewers "minor league player of the year" last year. The 23 year-old will probably miss a month or so of action. For those of you who don't know...the groin is what's connected to the unit.
Ken Macha might be opening himself up more to the players this season.
FSWisconsin and the Crew got it right this season! All televised games on the channel will be in HD. When will WMLW games be picked up by Charter cable? This is getting silly.
Ben Sheets will make his debut with the A's against the Brewers, slated for March 5th. Sheets' first day of training involved him almost taking a turn towards Maryvale instead of the A's camp, which is 10 minutes away. Silly guy. I wish him the best. I'm just glad that he's not pitching for the Cubs or Cards or the NL in general. When he's on and healthy, there's no stopping him....except for a blister. I would imagine that Big Ben will pretty much dice up Corey Hart.
