Hits & Misses: Spring Training Game 14

Rockies 5, Mariners 4 (Boxscore)


Ryan Harvey

Well, he's not making the team or anything, but top honors to Harvey for hitting the decisive 3-run homer. I don't care what level you're playing at or what the circumstances are, that's a good feeling. Congratulations are in order for that.

Ubaldo Jimenez

The ace is ready for April 5.  He is in a serious groove.  I just wish there was a way to either fast forward to that date or bottle up all the goodness he's delivering right now.

Michael Paulk

The Rockies invited about 5 or 6 first basemen to camp this season.  None are playing better than Paulk.  He has a nice swing, he gets on base and he plays fairly solid defense.  It's actually kinda nice that a young guy can have the type of spring he's having and none of us get overly excited about it because we know the team is rock solid and set.  We've come a long way.

Tim Redding (The Hitter)

Two hits today?  Seriously?


Tim Redding (The Pitcher)

He came back to earth a little bit on the mound today.  He vultured the win by allowing all four Mariners runs (three earned) over 3 1/3 innings.  Eight baserunners allowed over that time.  That's more like the Tim Redding Mets fans become familiar with.

Seth Smith

0-for-3 with 4 LOB.  Bench him?  Trade him?  How about we just watch this over and over again instead?
