A couple of years back former board member Crowhop (Keith Jones) and I used to write daily reports of interesting stat-lines across major league baseball. We did this for nearly a full season, but things broke up as our personal lives filled with responsibility. I had a lot of fun writing it though, and I am continuing it now for FCB during spring training as lots of important sports card stuff happens as a result of spring training games and position battles. This was a short day as there weren’t many games, but there were a couple of long balls that stood out.
Lonnie is now a full time big league starter as the Indians have named him the full time third baseman. He’s also healthy and figures to make a push this year. If he sees a big spring his 2008 Bowman Draft autograph could shoot up in value.
Jedd is a couple of years behind Chisenhall in his development but still has a shot to make the club out of spring training. Fellow San Deigo prospect Rymer Liriano going under the knife will give him a clean shot at the job. This big fly by Gyorko will certainly help his chances.
