    Kemp has started all 10 games he has played. Toles has played in 12, but has come off the bench in a few, was also not part of the sick brigade so they needed him to step in more.

    Can't believe the Yankees, far under the lux tax line, didn't jump on Arrieta
    He's better than Gray

    The Dodgers will be better off when Parra retires.

    I'll be better off. Nobody should have as much hatred in their heart as I do for that little piece of human garbage.

    Did I read the box score correctly yesterday in that Pedro Baez (or he who shall not be named) got the win and has a Spring ERA over 9?

    Hill had his customary shitty spring start. Couldn't get out of the first. I was dealing with updating my CC info for MLB.TV (and MiLB.TV) and missed the whole thing. From the sounds of it, it is windy as shit today so he's not getting the bite on the curve and had more than a couple BABIP drop in's. Just a reminder, throughout his entire career Rich Hill has been terrible in ST.

    Toles rips a leadoff double. Nothing makes me happier this spring than seeing this kid bounce back the way he has.

    Yeah, it is insanely windy and blowing out toleft. Grandal just crushed one out oppo by just trying to go the other way with it.

    The winds are about 20 MPH and blew a ball out to left that Toles woulda caught(instead it was barely a 3 run bomb) and another pop up to him that got away. Breaking pitches are not going to have any bite today.

    Jake Peter was in an 0-2 hole and then ripped one up the middle for a single, narrowly missing Hammel's head. This dude is having one hell of a spring. It will be interesting to see if he can keep it up(obviously not to this extreme) in AAA until they need him.

    lol, headline for MLB.com before that AB
    Watch: Matter of time for LA slugger
    With 48 homers in 2016-17, Corey Seager's first spring HR can't be far off.

    The AB that Grandal just had is one that drives the frustration in him. After hitting a HR, he is up there hacking for number 2. Swings at FB at eye level, then checks his swing on a breaking pitch in the dirt, to only follow that up by swinging at another breaker in the dirt

    Story will be about how David Price made a great return to pitching this spring, east coast bias.

    Buehler living 97-98 at the knees with the FB, but not locating as well as he was in his last start. Getting a lot of run on the FB today which is causing Barnes to have to move the glove a lot. Luckily the ump is giving it to him. I believe he threw his first offspeed pitch for a strike to the 6th batter of the game, the others were not good enough to draw swings. He probably should have K'd the guy who walked as the ump is not giving him the right side of the plate here in the 2nd.
