Thursday's Quick Hits

So yesterday brought the official start of spring training. Below is a recap of yesterday's games and a preview of today's:

So the Phillies decide to send Aumont to the mound last night against Florida St., what a disaster this was. He allowed two hits, five runs, three walks, one home run and one wild pitch in just two-thirds of an inning. Supposedly Charlie wants to make him a starter rather than a reliever. That is a big mistake. Also, Dubee says that he showed great performance and that he is still working on his mechanics. I am not buying that excuse. Finally, Aumont blames his outting on his expecations of being a big name person for the Phillies just because he was involved in the Lee deal. The only way to make a name for yourself is perform well. By looking at his line from last night, against a college team, he needs to be in Reading until at least June and then the Phillies should decide what to do with him.

Today the Phillies play the Yankees, with CC going against Halladay. Anyone see this rematch again come October??? I do. I see Halladay going two innings, giving up one run, striking out two and walking one. I see the Phillies winning 7-4. Howard going deep and Rollins having a double.

So yesterday the stumbling Red Sox from last year decided to open their spring training against Northeastern Huskies. Team only had two hits. Does that mean the Red Sox are that good or that Northeastern is that bad. One high note is that Big Poppi had a homerun. Could be more things to come this year....hopefully (dude shit the bed last year for me in fantasy baseball).

So yesterday congress in Missouri have decided to part ways with Mark McGwire Highway and bring the road back to it original name, Mark Twain Highway. I agree with the notion to return to its roots and bring back the name that it was from the beginning but what do they do with that former sign. My suggestion would be to rename a drunken alley where hookers work Mark McGwire Street. This way if out of staters are looking for drugs and steriods all they have to do is look for the name and travel in that direction.

The Arizona Diamondbacks decided to make a move and keep their prospect in their possession for the next six years. The Diamondbacks agreed to a contract with Upton for 51+ million over six years. Upton has put up stellar numbers in his first two years and that is good enough for the Diamondbacks to shove all that money his way. I would have made it a three year deal in the area of 27 million. That way if he starts to slump and not produce, you're not tied up with all that money.
