Not much new to report today at Fitch - was only there for a couple hours. The bunting tournament is well underway with lots of ooohs and aaaahs coming from that area. It sort of blows because a lot of the players are out there instead of being on the fields where you can actually see them.
I am going to have to force myself to branch out a little because I'm rather addicted to watching Solar/Baez/Ch Villaneuva/Nelson's group move from station to station. Theo and Jed are having the same problem! So much to like there!
The buzz of the day was Soriano signing autographs for the fans two different times. A rare occurance, and what a lot of people are out there for (Castro and Soriano are in the same group).
Blake Parker, Michael Bowden, Rafael Dolis, and Carlos Marmol threw live BP -- there were others ealier that I did not see. Marmol threw mostly strikes - mostly fastballs. Bowden could not get the ball over - he was facing Baez and Solar's group - and they weren't biting, which was nice to see.
Junior Lake looked good again in the cage vs live pitching. I think he's even bigger today
I don't know what the plans are for how many catchers they will break camp with, but Clevenger and Navarro are providing an interesting competition.
