Legends Fields where the grass is Greener

Today was the first day of live batting practice. Chilly weather has turned around and finally it's starting to feel like spring. No Bernie Williams at Yankees camp I guess he's rejecting minor league offer as non roster invitee. Roger Clemens sighting was reported at Astro's camp I've heard he's working out with his son. Boston camp is a total media circus.
It's not like I have some kind of insight just because I'm here in Florida, but it sure is fun.
Live batting practice will give future speculation into upcoming exhibition games with some tell tale signs as to who will be pitching when. It'll be an educated guess nothing else besides who can tell how these pitchers will perform. Oh yeah, Pavano threw some live ball as well as Pettite and Moose. The hot prospect for the Yanks pitching staff will be young Hughes. I'll be back with the other pitchers tomorrow.

Smell the Grass....No, I'm talking Baseball

It's a cool Feb. night here in Tampa, Florida. Pitchers and Catchers will be reporting soon. I'll be checking in on Yankees camp and few other places within driving distance. My interest will be with Yanks pitching hopefully there's telling tales in the spring for what will come in the summer. Days will warm up and it should be fun.

Here we are 13 days away from Pitchers and Catchers reporting to camp, but in the meantime Caribbean Series is about to start. We have Hermosillo representing Mexico, Gigantes will represent Puerto Rico, Aragua represents Venezuela, and Aguilas the Dominican.

Venezuela and Dominica comes in with momentum. These two teams will match up in the early game. Dominica boasts the big league talent, but Venezuela can roll with the best. Jose Lima expected to start for Dominica and I'm backing the high total to go

Under is taking in some money. That was expected with big number like this so don't panic, 6-4 or 6-5 type game is not unusual in the free flowing Caribbean.

Venezuela/Dominica Over 9.5 (L)

That was a good game, but no where close to going Over.
