Spring Training Miscellany: Intrasquad Gamin’, Suzuki Comebacker Backsides Steele, Madrigal, Stroman, More

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs game today is later tonight, but I had some bits to share, so I’ll just drop them now. Including some of the work the regulars were doing back at Sloan in an intrasquad game …

Seiya Suzuki is apparently too dangerous for intrasquad games. The first time he nearly smoked pitching prospect Anderson Espinoza, and this time he thunked Justin Steele:

I assume from the joking that followed among the beats in attendance that Steele was fine. Obviously if you’re going to be hit by a comebacker, the glute is the best place.

It’s *possible* this alignment could arrive some year in the future, though it might be a little while:

Stroman versus Suzuki, with Suzuki fouling out on a groundball (something that happens in fake games), and Suzuki striking out after a long at bat:

This must’ve been a great catch in right field, because the crowd reaction is fun:

Random old friend edition – dude’s homers were always just different, and this one is ridiculous (worth having the sound on):

You know how Sean Manaea was traded by the A’s to the Padres this morning? Well he immediately joined up and started for the Padres today … against the A’s:

Totally random highlight because I happened to see it, and thought you might enjoy:

Gotta love homers that come on pitches you shouldn’t even be swinging at (but apparently he should!).
