Hits & Misses: Spring Training Game 3

Rockies 7, Angels 5  (Boxscore)


Clint Barmes 

Nice statement by Barmes with the first AB home run.  That said, I would like to see him use the entire field more at the plate instead of coming up straight pulling every time. But hey, another 23 bombs would be hard to argue with.

Ian Stewart

Much better today.  He pulled a triple deep to right off a righty.  That was vintage Stewart.  What I really liked though was the clean single to right off a tough lefty in Brian Fuentes.  He stayed on a breaking ball and just looked to take it where it was pitched. He then followed that up with a double off another lefty.   Improved approach today, especially after the powerful first AB.

Hits & Misses: Spring Training Game 2

Giants 7, Rockies 4 (Boxscore)


Carlos Gonzalez and Jonathan Herrera each had a pair of hits.  That's about the extent of the excitement in this one.


Jeff Francis

Not much positive to take away from this for Jeff other than he appears to have remained healthy.  I'm not worried yet, obviously, but I'm honestly not counting on Jeff to be real good this season.  I'm very hopeful that he will be, but I'm not counting on it.  Hopefully he can bounce back next time out to at least get some confidence going.  That's the first step he needs to take towards being useful.
