D-TRAIN ROLLS ON IN SPRING

Dtrain1_1 Amazing to think that he’s still only 25 years old.

In yesterday’s spring training game Willis struck out 3 of the 10 batters he faced.  This is great news for the hurting staff.

His line was 3.0IP 1H 0ER 0BB 3K

D-TRAIN STILL A ROCK STAR

Willis2_2 For all the trade talk surrounding Willis I can’t understand why you’d want to let a catch like him go.  We’re not talking about a Zito or a Meche.  We’re talking the face of a franchise.  If Ernie Banks is Mr. Cub than D-train is Mr. Marlin.  Or at least he should be.  For a team with 2 World Series wins they lack Hall of Fame depth.  The Rockies and D-Backs will have guys contest for Copperstown caps come 2020. 

Maybe the ballpark is the secret here.  The key to building roots.  It’s not like they haven’t won.  But if you need a program to tell you who’s wearing your uniforms you have to keep some of these guys.  Shell out some coin, please.
