I hate to say it, but there’s still a lot of time left. More time left, than the time past, so far in Spring Training! Eric Milton has had two good outings and one bad outing, but his Spring Training ERA is 3.59 – NOT TOO SHABBY. He could be the one to step up and do it. I still am sticking to my Schmidt prediction, but if he doesn’t have his control by Opening Day, he could ngo down on a rehab assignment (no one has told me that, but it is possible). Milton was once a good pitcher and he is only 32. If he can return to form, we could do worse. Vargas has not distinguished himself and Estes has looked even worse. The Dodgers want McDonald to pitch out of the pen and if Milton keeps it up, he could be our man. There’s a lot to be determined though.
I’ll post more tomorrow. My iPhone quit getting e-mail and so I’m sitting here at San Antonio Airport anwering about 120 e-mails, since Saturday. Roger and I drove back from Phoenix. We stayed in Las Cruces last night and the hotel breakfast game me food poisoning (either that or Roger poisoned me). I was sick all day yesterday. I puked all over the Southwest! Roger had to drive all the way back as I was too dizzy. I’m better today. More to come when I get back to Indy.
