the thought of Fulmer making the team is just insane.

I hope both Fry & Bummer start at AAA, the 2nd lefty in the pen should be Ross.

Giolito, Kopech and Cease have all looked really good so far, and we haven't even been treated to the guy i thought would be the best Hansen.

And then there's Carson Fulmer. Yuck.

Some news on Giolito

When we traded for him, my real big concern was that the FB was not back, if he has resolved that issue over this offseason and is really back to 95 (hope hes back to the 95-97 range as season goes on), that could really help turn this rebuild around faster then expected.

Giolito, Kopech and Cease have all looked really good so far, and we haven't even been treated to the guy i thought would be the best Hansen.

I was at Camelback this past weekend. I've now seen Eloy in three games counting last year at a Winston Salem game, and he homered in all three games. It was particularly sweet against the Cubs at Sloan Park with a loud and boisterous crowd that suddenly groaned. ;D

Sounds like someone's pining for season tickets....

    On March 14 in Baseball History...

    1932 - Catcher Ernie Lombardi comes to the Reds along with outfielder Babe Herman and third baseman Wally Gilbert, while infielders Joe Stripp and Tony Cuccinello and catcher Clyde Sukeforth are sent to the Dodgers. Herman bats .324 in one season in Cincinnati following the trade (he will later return to the club for two seasons), but Lombardi makes the trade a steal. Lombardi bats .311 in 10 seasons in Cincinnati, winning a batting title and MVP Award in 1938.

    1953 - Joseph Darst vows to fight losing the hometown Browns to Baltimore. The St. Louis mayor's efforts will be not be enough to prevent the franchise shifting cities when the team shareholders drop their suit against Bill Veeck and approve the move to the east coast after learning the club will be bankrupt if it stays put.

    1954 - Hank Aaron, filling in for Bobby Thomson who broke his ankle yesterday, starts his first game wearing a Braves uniform. The 20 year-old from Mobile, Alabama makes such an impression when he collects three hits, including a home run, in the spring training game against Boston that the club offers him a major league contract.

    1961 - The Mets lure former Yankee general manager George Weiss out of retirement to become the club's first president. The iron-fisted executive had been the Yankees' general manager from 1947 to 1960.

    1993 - The Reds announce the St. Bernard owned by Reds president Marge Schott is being prohibited access to the Riverfront Stadium field for the season. The edict to ban Schottzie 02 comes from the MLB's Executive Council, who have received numerous complaints from the players about dogs running on the field.

    1995 - The players' union makes it clear that the strike will not be settled if replacement players are used in regular season games‚ and if results are not voided. The NLRB also announces it will be charging MLB owners with two counts of unfair labor practices.

    2003 - Able to maintain the organization's "long standing philosophy", which lets Cablevision customers choose whether or not to receive paid programming'', the cable giant agrees to a one-year interim deal to offer YES Network to New York Yankees fans for a fee ending a bitter and costly yearlong feud. The arrangement makes YES a premium channel instead of a basic cable channel which the new network had previously mandated and would have made every subscriber pay for the channel regardless of the viewer's choice.

    2003 - Vladimir Guerrero is suspended for three regular-season games and Marlin starter Brad Penny for five due to igniting an exhibition game bench-clearing brawl earlier in the week. After being hit in the chest by the Marlins' starter's first inning pitch, the Expo All-star outfielder, with his bat in his left hand swung his right fist around Matt Treanor, the Florida catcher trying to restrain him, missing Penny, who retaliated with a punch which also missed its mark.

    2003 - The Brewers' TV/radio play-by-play announcer, Bob Uecker is chosen for induction into the broadcasters' wing of the Hall of Fame as the recipient of the Ford C. Frick Award. The 68-year-old former back-up catcher, who joined the Milwaukee broadcast crew in 1971, is best known for the humor he has brought to the game through his starring role in the cult movie Major League and the beer commercial in which the phrase 'Must be in the front row!' has become a familiar cry in ballparks around the country.

    2003 - Dependent on passing a physical, free agent Kenny Lofton agrees to a one-year pact to play with the Pirates this season. The 35-year-old leadoff man would most likely start in center moving Brian Giles to left field with left fielder Reggie Sanders going to right.

    2006 - Terry Francona agrees a two-year contract extension keeping the skipper at the helm through 2008. The Red Sox manager replaced Grady Little in December 2003 and promptly brought Boston to its first World Championship in 86 years.

    2006 - Washington D.C. officials unveil the designs for a new home for the Nationals scheduled to be opened in 2008. The glass-and-steel 41,000-seat ballpark will feature pale stone chosen to complement the well-known skyline of the nation's capital.

    2006 - Avoiding a trial scheduled to begin on opening day, Major League Baseball settles a lawsuit with an Atlanta-based company that claimed it owned the trademark rights to the name Washington Nationals. Bygone Sports LLC was sued by MLB who asked the court to declare that the trademark for the name Nationals does not belong to the company because its sole purpose in filing the September 2002 trademark application was to capitalize on the renaming of the team that was recently shifted from Montreal to Washington.

    2008 - Randy Wolf, the Padres’ new left-hander starter, struggles in a 6-2 spring training loss to the Brewers in Peoria, Arizonia. The pitcher's brother, Jim, isn't much help as the home plate umpire, an occurrence which isn’t allowed during a regular-season game and is the only time it has ever happened, as the San Diego hurler gives up three runs in four innings.

    2014 - The Kansas City Royals signed Ramon Troncoso as a free agent.

    On March 13 in Baseball History...

    1917 - After hearing that Gabby Street had caught a ball dropped off the Washington Monument, Dodgers manager Wilbert Robinson bragged that he could catch a ball dropped from an airplane, even though he was in his mid-50s and well above his playing weight. But Casey Stengel substituted a grapefruit for the baseball. Robinson circled unsteadily under the descending spheroid and actually got a glove on it before it splattered across his chest. Robinson felt the ooze, thought it was blood, and screamed that he was dying until he tasted the juice. He later conceded that he probably would have been killed if a real baseball had been dropped from the plane.

    1943 - The major leagues approve an official ball, the insides of which will be made from reclaimed cork and balata, materials not needed in the war effort. Officials insist the ball will have the resiliency of the 1939 ball, but the players will express with dismay that they cannot drive the new ball and point out the dearth of runs and homers in 1942 even with the old ball.

    1944 - It's True, Cy Young's middle name is not Tucumseh, as generally accepted, but the middle initial T really stands for True.

    1953 - Braves' owner Lou Perini announces he will seek permission from the National League to move his franchise from Boston to Milwaukee. The day will become known as 'Black Friday' in Beantown.

    1954 - During an exhibition game against the Yankees, recently acquired Brave Bobby Thomson breaks his ankle in three places and will be sidelined until July 14. The '51 National League playoff hero is replaced by a promising prospect named Hank Aaron.

    1960 - The White Sox become the first major league team to feature players' names on the backs of their uniforms. The monikered jerseys, an innovation brought forward by team owner Bill Veeck, will make it easier for viewers watching the games on television to identify the players.

    1979 - The Tigers and Mets swap relievers with Detroit sending Ed Glynn to the Big Apple in exchange for Mardie Cornejo, who after posting a 4-2 record as a rookie lat season will never play in another major league game. In contrast, the latest addition to the New York bullpen will make 84 appearances compiling an ERA of 3.53 during the two years with his new club.

    1986 - In a Royal pre-season game, Hal McRae (age 39) and his son Brian (age 18) play together against the Phillies. Kansas City manager Dick Howser refers to the event as the 'Big Mac Attack'.

    1997 - In their first ever minor league spring training game, the Rays defeated Philadelphia, 6-0. John Kaufman, Tom Bergan, Matt Williams, and Jamie Ybarra combine to throw a no-hitter in the exhibition contest against the major league team.

    2001 - Throwing 22 strikes out of 29 pitches over two innings of shutout ball in his surprise start against the Mets at Roger Dean Stadium, Rick Ankiel makes his first appearance since the 2000 playoffs in which he loss his control throwing seven wild pitches in three postseason appearances.

    2006 - Three pitches into the top of the seventh inning, the stadium lights at Tradition Field partially fail. With fifty percent of the lights not functioning, the exhibition game is ended, after a 15-minute delay, with the Mets leading the Nationals, 10-4.

    2008 - Joining the ranks of Garth Brooks and Tom Selleck as celebrities who have appeared in an spring exhibition game, Billy Crystal strikes out in the first inning as the Yankees' leadoff batter. The comedian, who sign a one-day contract with the Bronx Bombers, wears the number sixty in honor of his 60th birthday which is tomorrow.

    2008 - The pitching-poor Cardinals bolster their rotation by agreeing to a preliminary one-year deal with Kyle Lohse (9-12, 4.62). The 29-year old right-hander, who pitched the Reds and Phillies last season, will make $4.25 million hurling for the Redbirds.

    2009 - Pat Burrell takes out ads in two of Philadelphia’s largest newspapers to thank Phillies fans for their support during his nine years with the team. The 32-year old slugging outfielder signed a free-agent deal in the off-season with the Rays, the club the Phils beat in last season’s World Series.

    2011 - Jackie Robinson's former apartment in Montreal is remembered with the placement of a plaque by the U.S. government as a tribute to the Canadian city for their exemplary treatment of the future Hall of Fame infielder. The season before he broke the color barrier, the Dodger farmhand led the hometown Royals to the 1946 International League championship with a .349 batting average and earned the circuit's Most Valuable Player for his outstanding performance with the team

    2013 - The Detroit Tigers released Brennan Boesch.
