Kerry Wood has been dealing with a sore back for a few days. It is fortunately not anything to worry about according to Wood, Carl Willis (Indians’ Pitching coach), Eric Wedge, and the Cubs’ trainer. Wood says this happens every year at the beginning of the Spring and it usually only sets him back a day or two. Since the Indians were already planning on easing him back into baseball there is very little concern over Wood’s health in Goodyear.
Isn’t this a funny picture?
Baseball players are goofy aren’t they?
Also Mark DeRosa and Lou Pinella get along just fine. They actually talked to DeRosa today and I can not see how anyone would not get along with him. He was very affable and personable and I really like him. I also liked it when he called Grady “the best leadoff hitter in baseball.” I completely agree.
The Indians lost again today, but I do not care that much. It is just fun to be watching baseball again. We had the lead for awhile and scored 9 runs so I think we did okay. Our pitching was fine until we got into late relief. It was good to get some new guys out there and get them some experience too. I also love seeing the new players and really getting to see where the Indians are going. I see big things in their future from what I have seen this spring.
This is something I want to see a lot this year.
I am so excited for this season. If Grady and DeRosa keep up what they have been doing in Spring Training we will have a very potent 1-2 punch at the beginning of the lineup. And we should Victor and Hafner back strong with a powerful Jhonny Peralta and a powerful Choo as well. Our lineup is going to be scary. I am ready to see it in action.
Sorry I forgot to put this up yesterday. I was really tired.
