I just finished an appearance on Melnick and Greco Fantasy Sports radio show broadcasting live from Mickey Mantle's Restaurant in NYC. Thank you guys and keep up the great work.
On to the "Spring Training Boxscores: Fantasy Notes" for March 21, 2008.
Unrivaled starting SS for the Baltimore Orioles, Luis Hernandez, stole his second base of the Spring. I can't imagine a scenario where anything Hernadez does makes me draft him for my team.
Francisco Cordero pitched the 9th for the Reds. He was set-up by David Weathers. No surprise there.
Elijah Dukes returned from a strained hamstring that has kept him out of action since early nthis week. He has to be considered the presumptive starter with Wily Mo Pena out for the first six weeks of the season.
Moises Alou fill-in, Angel Pagan, has four SBs this Spring. With a .355 AVG so far, he is the prohibitive favorite to be in left field for the Mets on opening Day.
Who just hit his 4th and 5th HRs of the Spring? Arizona Diamondback's catcher Chris Snyder.
The San Francisco Giants used their closer, Brian Wilson, in the 9th inning. Unfortunately, he blew the save. The 8th inning duties were handled by Tyler Walker.
Batting 3rd for the Kansas City Royals, 3B Alex Gordon! This would be great news for his fantasy owners as he would see more opportunites to drive in runs and get ABs here rather then 6th or 7th.
