  2. the brain says Kevin Slowey and the keyboard gives you Scott Baker. That says something about me, I just don’t know what.

  3. I think it’s commonly referred to as a stroke.

  5. Scouting has a definite edge over statistics in spring training. The opponent talent level, variance in preparedness, and abnormal usage patterns produce irrelevant statistical results (regardless of sample size).

  6. FWIW, there were a lot of scouts and a lot of guns on John Garland during his start against the Rockies on the 4th. Maybe they were just getting things calibrated for Walker, Wilhelmsen, Capps, Pryor, etc, but I doubt it. It appeared that the Royals and a few other teams were doing their homework on Garland in case he is released, or perhaps the M’s are letting teams know that a SP will available for trade if Garland and Saunders prove sea worthy.

  7. Beavan has options left so they can stash him in Tacoma, however he also has years of team control left while Garland is one and done. The M’s could trade him before the season starts or at the deadline and get something of value for him. The same applies to their outfield conundrum between Jason Bay and Casper Wells, except Wells is out of options. One or the other is a potential solution to a Yankees need. The Yanks would love paying Bay $1.5MM for the season while the Mets pay him $22MM for not playing for them.
