    Spring Training '23

    First game is in two days. No Kirk? With the rule changes bit of a deal he gets use to them.

    Well he is awaiting the birth of his first child. Scheinder has said that they planned for this. He does have the WBC which may throw a bit of a wrench into their plans though.

    Iím low key excited to see if Mitch White can steal the 5th spot in the rotation. If not then I think heís a reasonable option as a swing man.

    Kooch has changed some things. New arm slot, new grip on the curve.

    Iíve been reading about that too. Heís also set to kick off ST tomorrow. Iím just wary of him due to the lack of fastball command but if that changes, the 5th spot is his to lose.

    Still love his potential as a strikeout pitcher, donít even mind having the contract on the books. Heís the type of guy that is worth a gamble.

    But I have very little faith. Hope he surprises.

    I'd say Kirk needs to get in camp ASAP. Pitch clock is going to change the game in my opinion. Especially late in games as relief pitchers seem to slow game down more in crucial situations.

    He needs to give up the WBC idea

    Looking at yesterday 's highlights, Pitch clock really has sped game up. I think they should have gone 20 and 25 seconds maybe? Give batter 12 seconds to set up

    White showed up to camp with shoulder impingement. Don't sound good for him as 5th stsrter

    Yea or maybe phase it in.

    If the only goal is to speed up the game then it will do that, but I enjoy the slow pace of the game - the mind games....etc It's a part of the game
