    Between Baker's health issues and Marquis's personal tragedy, I'd be more surprised if he doesn't go north.

    Could be Baker's spot or Marquis's. I'm sure they're trying to get him stretched out, so he should get 5-6 innings.

    Let's say Baker starts season on DL. Who would be another candidate other than Hendricks? They seem determined to use Duensing out of the bullpen. If it is not Hendricks - I would assume it falls to Swarzak. What are your guys/gals opinions?

    If not Hendriks, I am guessing Swarzak would be next in line.

    Casey Fien finally gave up a run this spring. Still would be good to see him work earlier in a game.

    Why not Dinkleman as the extra OF/middle infielder and PH?

    Baker in the 80's doesn't cut it. Hopefully it's jus because his arm isn't built up b/c he's missed so much time this spring.

    And by average, of course you mean a guy who has put up WAR's of 8.7, 3.9 and 6.6 the past 3 years. Albert Pujol's last 3 years are 9.0, 7.5 and 5.1. Miguel Cabrera's last 3 years are 5.3, 6.3 and 7.3. I'm not saying Ben Zobrist is necessarily that good, but your assertion that Zobrist is "slightly better than average" is absolutely laughable.
