Freese is hitting 3rd for the pirates behind McCutchen.

 

I could see him having a big year.

 

Uh-oh. Once you mention David Freese in any AW discussion, Notti's hemorrhoid pops back out. This thread will now head to 8 pages of how David Freese is injury prone and a poor defender.

By the time Freese was as cheap as he signed for, it wasn't really Freese vs. Escboar, it was Freese vs. Choi or less likely Freese vs. Giavotella.  

 

At this point, I like what I'm seeing from Gia.  Flip a coin for me on freese vs. choi.  Choi is a lefty and can also play the OF, but can't play 3b.  I guess if we wanted a poor defending 3b with some Rhed pop we could just call up Jefry Marte who I actually like and think will be a starter at some point if we can keep him long enough.  I'm probably in the minority on that one though.

Who we kidding ... we signed Escobar to lead off. Freese isn't a lead off hitter. I have no problem trading Gott to acquire a lead off hitter.

Hope I don't hear his name again ... move on people.

Felix Hernandez will make his ninth Opening Day start for the Mariners. The previous eight have all been wins for the team. That's an MLB record.

Too bad we can't watch Trout hit a homer off of him for the 3rd straight opening day...

Cano homers off Hammels (Tex) in his first AB, a line drive that was out of there in .34 seconds..

Everyone says Cano has had a great spring...that was a rocket shot.
