    Probably not but I'd rather see them be aggressive early on in spring training. They can always tone down the aggression but it may be harder to ramp it back up.

    Agreed but it felt like he was going to be out by 15-20 feet. 3 walks in the last 4 batters get this guy off the mound. Bases loaded.

    Happ- Allowed three runs... with only one put out.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Okay, guys, question. Hammer's pop out was to the left of the first baseman. It that to the left of 1st or right of first? Do you say it from the 1st baseman's standpoint or the hitter's standpoint?

    In any event, it was in foul territory.

    Jays' starting pitching would have been better today if it had been Happ-less. Har.

    Sac Fly by Mitchell to right center. 4-0.

    Escobar with a shallow fly to left.

    Twins out for the inning.

    2 clean innings by Worley in the other game. Gave up a double to Markakis and had 2 strikeouts.

    Apparently likes high fastballs. Probably why he hasn't spent time in majors.

    Hicks will leadoff again in 2nd, glad to see it. If he gets his confidence going he can be an impact player this year.

    The boxscore shows him currently with an .833 batting average. Is this just a hot streak, or can he keep this up?

    Per Bollinger: he's now 5-for-6 with three doubles so far this spring.
