Moose 'N 'Pen: Notes from Exhibition Game #3

So, I did not catch today's game and thus the notes are second-hand information.

1) Apparently Moose struggled a bit in his second inning today. It's certainly much too early to draw any conclusions (see Ford, Whitey: Spring Training for details), but he is so far the only starter to have given up more than a hit in two innings of work. I am not worried at this point, because, well, it'd be un-optimistic.

2) According to the box score that was on my cell phone, Morgan Ensberg had a couple hits and a couple RBI. As did Shelley. It would be kind of funny if our 1B combined in the season for A-Rod-ish numbers.

3) Karstens pitched WELL. Don't count this kid out, he might be the 'sleeper' on the team, the guy that ends up being much more important than we realize.


On another note entirely: I have been hotly debating this for some time, and I still have mixed feelings about it, but I will likely start running ads. Well, an ad.

See, I do love not having ads, but there are a few reasons to run at least one. I don't want to get too detailed into it, but I'm hoping you guys will forgive me this little bit.

Anyway, the writing's not going to change. Not a bit. You'd probably have to shoot me first.*

*Except that the writing might change in that the more I do this, the better the quality.

  1. Agree about Karstens. He could be a Ramiro Mendoza type - long relief and spot starter.
    You know that I think that you are a great writer, so I'll forgive the ad(s)as long as you keep up your writing.
