Wednesday: would this season start already? Please?
PI: Random notebook stuff, including this cool tidbit:
Rafael Soriano was warming up in the bottom of the third inning when Betancourt homered into the bullpen. Without stepping off the mound, Soriano caught the ball on the fly, flipped the ball into the stands and continued warming up.
Betancourt has worked all spring on hitting to the right side of the diamond, and he should be a good bunter and hit-and-run threat.
Be afraid, fans.
Times: Guardado is a prankster. In tomorrow’s paper: dog bites man.
