Of course, they all look good in the bullpen. But, I’m looking forward to the games starting. There’s always something that can be learned when they start playing. Always some questions that pop up.
For example, how healthy is Orlando Hernandez? Duque said he didn’t have surgery to remove a bunion on his right foot, but to fix a dislocated toe. He said it has thrown off his balance, but is planning on throwing BP Saturday.
If Hernandez isn’t ready, then the fifth starter job would go to Mike Pelfrey. Worth keeping an eye on.
Me? I’m not worried about Oliver Perez losing his arbitration hearing. Scott Boras will simply tell him there’s more to come.
