Florida Squibs and Squabbles

A few notes from Florida, as we settle in on a lovely Saturday afternoon:

-Another addition to the David Wells Idiot Pantheon: Terry Francona. A missed dinner not the issue this time.

-Shawn Chacon’s 5 hit, 3k, 3.2 inning outing was either “solid” (Peter Abraham) or a “struggle” (NYT). All a matter of perspective.

-Sheff is now 1-18 in spring training. No blaming that on the WBC. Speaking of: DR vs. Cuba and Japan vs. Korea tonight in the semis.

  • Chacon threw 88 pitches in those 3.2 innings. Whether he was just “working things out” is up for question, but the guess here is that a pitch count that high in a spring training game in such short innings means two things: Chacon’s arm is in shape, and he was all over the place. One is good, the other not so good. Still, it’s just ST.

  • 88 pitches? Yanks fans better hope he can do better than that over 3.2 innings. Mo can’t pitch four innings every five days, you know.

  • One thing we learned last year is that Chacon doesn’t worry. I’m not going to worry about Chacon.
