Pedro Martinez going. They want five out of him, then six in his tune-up game.
Pedro Feliciano, Matt Wise and Scott Schoeneweis will work out of the pen.
Line-ups not up yet. Heads or tails on Brian Schneider?
Too bad I’ll miss it. Tails on Brian, since he is hurt he won’t play.
I liked what I saw out of Pedro last time. He knows how to get hitters out.
John whats going on with Steven Register? I like many feel with Sanchez’s health a concern, that Register would make the team.. Yet he hasn’t pitched in the last 3 days, and isn’t supposed to pitch tonight..
I like what I’ve seen of Register too. I think his numbers this Spring are 3.12 ERA, six strikeouts, with no walks through eight innings. He’s still pretty young and appears to have good stuff, the only problem is keeping him on the roster for the entire year. Even if Duaner is not healthy by opening day, we assume he’ll be ready to go at some point, which puts Registers bullpen spot in jeopardy.
Also anyone notice that John Patterson got cut by the Nationals yesterday. I could be wrong, but I think Patterson was originally a first round pick by Minaya back with the Expos. I know he’s not been healthy the past two years and has never lived up to expectations, but I would take a look at him. You can never have enough pitching depth and beyond Pelfrey and Tony Armas Jr. there’s not much there to fall back on if Duque can’t go.
It’ll get stuck on it’s side like in that Twilight Zone episode, and Schneider will be able to hear peoples thoughts until he comes back later that day and knocks it over.
I was at the Minor League Complex before today’s game, and talked briefly with Brian Schneider. He said he feels fine, and will play (just hitting, no Catching) in the AAA game. He did that, and batted 5 times, with a HR, Single and long Fly Out.
He also said he plans to make the trip to Winter Haven tomorrow and play in the game.
