This could have been the feel good story of the spring. In some ways, it’s disappointing because you always want to root for a guy who’s trying to make it back. Palmer has hit .302 this spring, but he’s hit only one homer, and the rest of his nine hits have been singles. And with the way Inge has hit the ball during the preseason, it made it a little easier for Tram. I’m not sure if he’s going to accept a AAA assignment, or whether this means he’s going to retire.
Jason Johnson’s struggles have knocked him from the Opening Day start. Your new opening day pitcher is Jeremy Bonderman. Good for the kid, because he deserves it. If we’re grooming him to be the ace, we should treat him like he’s one.
