Spiezio at second, in OF?
“As we sit here today, he is one of our bench guys,” manager Mike Hargrove said. “He’ll play first and third, a little in the outfield and we can also use him at second base.”
Toonces nooooooooooooooooo! (explosion)
On the other hand —
“I’m not going to say he’s locked into the bench,” the manager said. “If someone gets injured, or he has a tremendous spring and someone else doesn’t, we’d look at him being a regular.”
That’s a pretty generic spring training comment, but still — pretty much that means that either Beltre or Sexson has to be hit by a bus that also hits Leone or Ibanez (respectively) and that careening bus would probably also have to get Dobbs if he’s having a hot spring.
And yet… Scott Spiezio, super-utility player? I can’t bring myself to see him in left.
Special note: I’ll be deleting all comments that get names wrong. No, really.
