Another Day, Another Step Closer To 2012 Contention

"My feet hurt, dadgummit." Yost said.
And so the start of  the 2011 spring training is of to a rousing start. And yes what a perfect day today, it even got to be 70 degrees here. So yeah just a lot of workouts and buildups today. Looking into the clouded and often brutal magic mirror of the future we're able to see the 10guys vying for a spot in the rotation this year.*(I'll write more on all of them later on when I feel like it)
  • Luke Hochevar
  • Kyle Davies
  • Jeff Francis
  • Vin Mazzaro
  • Bruce Chen 
  • Sean O'Sullivan
And don't forget the outsiders rotation group of:
  • Danny Duffy
  • Everett Teaford
  • Aaron Crow 
  • Nate Adcock  
Let's be honest folks, it's hard to look at that list and get a high out of it. Nope far from it. In fact when it appears that Luke Hochevar is going to be the #1 guy it's kind of scary. So yeah when your trying to build a rotation around AAAA level players and second chance guys it could be a long season.
But on the brighter side of things, Jason Kendall's goal is to be ready by opening day ! And in a season of youth and testing it should make everyone feel that much better that Ned Yost will be sporting #3 in honor of the great one Dale Earnhardt. So yeah we're all ready for a great year !
