Spring Training: What Are You Focusing On?

Postby 2021WSorBust on Sun Feb 10, 2019 12:50 pm

I'm curious what everybody is going to focus on during spring training. Right now with the current roster, it doesn't seem like there is going to be competition for a lot of roster spots. Just my opinion but I think Farley is going to have to rip the cover off of the ball to have a chance of being on the 25 man roster once the team comes back from Japan. I'll be curious how Felix does but I don't think his performance in the spring will change anything (unless he looks even worse than last year and they negotiate an extended stay on the DL). I'm looking forward to seeing the newer prospects - hopefully a couple of them will look like they can live up to their potential. Sheffield and Crawford are probaly the guys I'm most interested in watching. Kelenic and Dunn too but I'm not sure how much playing time these guys will get with the A squad.

Felix, If he can dig himself out of his current slump, then we might have a good year. If it's the same ol', same ol, the club paid for a guy with no competitive fire now that he has his.

Practice makes perfect Mikey. The more reps the better.

1. Felix.
2. Bruce.
3. Edwin.
4. Seager. Simply because I love watching a very good defensive third baseman.
5. Developing new Manhattan recipes for the spring and summer.

A lot, really.

I'm really intrigued by this youth infusion. I'm ready to learn about Mallex and fall in love with him and potentially Dee if they become the speed demon dynamo I expect them to be together. I feel like they'll form some tight brotherly bond real fast and that will be a fan's delight.

Of course I'll have my eyes on Hanny and Voge. I also want to check out the young SSs, Beckham and Crawford. What's Navaez like behind the plate? How is he with the staff?

What's Felix's attitude like? He's seen the team essentially change all around him and Seager. How does he get on with his new mates? Does he start getting used to the idea his time in Seattle is at an end?

But mostly I just want to see all the youth. I'm going to be scouting these games hard. Watching all the b games we get too. I really want to see what Kyle Lewis looks like. Evan White. DTR,
