Granted, regulars get yanked early in Spring Training for a whole host
of reasons completely unrelated to health. But when the yanking takes
place after one at bat, and the yankee (not the team, the guy being
yanked) is Milton Bradley (or Rich Harden), we’re going to take note.
Apparently Bradley had to run hard to snag a fly ball in the first
inning, and coupled with the early yankage, I’m nervous.
Holy God (and sweet Jesus – see, I meant them nicely), this is going
to be a long season.
