Just a quick side note, I’m listening to the Reds/Pirates game and they’re talking about bringing Gary Sheffield in. The guy talking for the Reds (missed who it is, might be Walt Jocketty) said simply their scouts said Gary can still hit but the big question is how many games he can play in the field. He also indicated Gary will probably make a decision on where he goes tomorrow.
With that, the Tigers have moved and they’re heading to Atlanta for a two game series against the Braves at Turner Field. In the meantime, they finished off their Florida play with an 8-5 win over the Jays. The only pitcher of consequence to throw was Ryan Perry and he threw a shutout inning. Josh Rainwater and Jon Huber were the relievers who were touched up for runs.
Brandon Inge belted his fifth homer of the spring and Carlos Guillen went two for three with two RBIs and a run. Miguel Cabrera also had a nice game with two hits and three RBIs. Magglio Ordonez also had a nice game and he went two for two with with two walks and a run.
No news on how Edwin Jackson did at the minor league game. Tomorrow’s game is a night game and Zach Miner will go against Javier Vazquez. Sunday’s game will be interesting because not only will Armando Galarraga and Rick Porcello get some time, but we’ll get to see Brave’s phenom Tommy Hanson.
Looks like Jeff Larish secured the final spot on the roster. That rounds things out for the 25 man.
