Your Spring Training preview …
Folks, we’re less than a week away from the reporting date for pitchers and catchers in Peoria.
How exciting is that?
We at MLB.com have already started our Spring Training coverage. We ran a preview story on Thursday that focuses on the youth of the team and if/how much they’ll get better in 2010. The link for the story is right here.
Here’s the question I asked there:
“But is it reasonable to expect that many of those young players who
fueled that run, such as outfielder Kyle Blanks, shortstop Everth
Cabrera and starting pitcher Mat Latos, among others, will collectively
continue to get better and won’t begin to reach their ceiling?”
We also ran our “quick hitter” preview on the Padres heading into the season which, if you have been living in a cave, might be a good primer on the team. You can find that story link right here.
We ask three questions there (and attempt to answer them), including where will Adrian Gonzalez be on Opening Day and at the trade deadline on July 31. Check is out.
Also, FanFest is Saturday. Yours truly will be at the digital media booth in case you want to stop by and say hello.
