This was Duke's last spring appearance, just throw the ball a little bit, go through the motions and make sure you're prepared for the Opener...

There are two positives from today's game...

Clement made a nice play on a badly thrown ball...

Quote:
The first throw, this one by Crosby on Ordonez's grounder, sailed to the dugout side of first base and caused first baseman-in-training Clement to come off the bag, catch the throw and tag out an arriving Ordonez


and Don Kelly made the Tigers 25 man roster...

Quote:
2:32: Tigers roster update:Mt. Lebanon's Kelly was told before the game that he'd made the roster, and it was announced to Detroit media. Nice job, Donnie. Now if your brother-in-law Neil Walker is trying to follow that same route to the bigs, as a utility guy. . .

Calling 7 of those runs "earned" is a stretch, because the "double" that drove in 3 of them was a fly ball where McCutch and Jones stared at each other. A couple more were Clement error at 1b.

Listening to the announcers, it was also Duke working on using his curveball in virtually every situation.

Did Jeff Larish make the 25 man roster for Detroit?

This just in ...

In his final spring start, Adam Wainwright goes 5, gets rocked for 10 hits and 5 runs.

In his final spring start, Roy Hallday goes 3, gives up 5 hits, 4 runs. He is humbled by Brett Cecil, who goes 6 quality innings, giving up 6 hits and 2 runs.

So should Cards fans be concerned about Wainwright and Phillies fans about Halladay based on these spring starts? If not, then why not, if Pirates fans should base conclusions on spring results?

Upon further review, Larish was a non roster invitee this spring.
