Re: Sherman Johnson, I'm guessing you don't see the bat progressing?
Eric A Longenhagen

I literally didn't see it because, in 5 ABs I saw this spring, Sherm didn't swing.
I sourced his report from scouts, entirely.
Have some with a 3 on the arm.

Casilla has fallen behind 2-1 on Maybin and Simmons, then went to a fastball away, and then a curveball each time.
Danny Espinosa, take note.
Another breaking ball on 3-2? With a right on deck?
Switch hitter, excuse me
Nope, fastball.

First pitch swinging from Espinosa, well struck flyball to right taken by Joyce. 2 out
Pinch hitting for Maldonado: Ben Revere

Game, A's are 1-0
Thanks for coming tonight, everyone.
Happy baseball season. I'll be chatting in the morning as well, though probably for a bit less than usual because of tonight.
