    So what was the two plays then? I know the one right before he left the game. But whats the other play?

    Nava gets the start in left. Well deserved.

     



    I almost penciled him into my projected line-up, but went with Bradley instead. No argument. I think Nava is hot, as he often is early in t6he season, so I'm OK with him out there in the short LF.

     

     



    looks like Farrell made the right call riding the hot bat into the home opener.

     



    Time for soty to get himself banned, come back under another name, and deny everything.

    Did you guys see that little hook step Nava has developed, ala Bryce Harper? Pretty cool and he knocked that ball right over the monster wasn't it. Perfect Fenway swing.

    Yes, it is interesting that it doesn't matter with you. You don't watch the same game, so what's the use in discussing anything with you.

    Boom, I heard him mention something about his stance during the post interview, but didn't catch it all.  I intend on re-watching to look for it.

    I do know that I'm really ECSTATIC for the guy.  Good things couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.  I'm sure you read Jid's comment on the very nice conversation they had with him?

    If Nava keeps this up only partially, he'll probably get more right-handed at bats than expected.  And, his defense is certainly decent.

    Nava's fundementals were flawless on that shot. He is not a big, powerful guy but he got excellent torque in that swing. It was great to watch, in a game where no one else was hitting.

    I gotta say that Baltimore's Adam Jones looks like a beast this year. He looks like vintage Arod up there.

    I was never very high on Nava as a right-handed hitter, but he has looked very good all spring long. He's very selective, rarely swings at bad pitches, and it looks like he finally has developed some consistent pop in his bat. And as Amp pointed out earlier, he was very much a gentleman to my handicapped father-in-law in Fort Myers. Sometimes good things DO happen to good people!

    Lackey ( w/ out the bicept cramp ). Can't get over how sharp he looked out there.

    I think we have 3 solid #3 guys. Nothing tremendous but the 3,4 and 5 slots should all win at over a 50% clip with this team. 

    Exactly as projected. Ye of little faith!

    With Nava, is it that little toe-tap you're referring to?..a Bryce Harper thing?

    GOOD question!!

    Bofore Lackey got hurt, his performance, considering it was his first start following long rehabilitation, was pretty impressive.

    Maybe the injury is only a temporary setback and the biceps will increase in strength over a little time.

    Judging only from the one start, Lackey did look best of the 3 candidates, Doubront the worst.  But that's one start.  Wish I had more confidence that one of those 3 could do it, but hoping someone from AAA might show up big later on.

    Before the season started, I saw Lackey as the best bet to step into a solid #3 role. As everyone knows by now, I was not confident in any of our 3-5 starters being a dependable starter, and that was the major reason I limited my outlook for our chances this year. I'm still worried, but at least my worries about one of Lester or Buch possibly struggling looks to be less likely at this point.

    Like Barry Zito did for the Giants last season?? he is very much like Lackey, Pitched very well for years until signing a big contract for a new team and sucked hardcore. Then out of nowhere he came in and was money in the 2012 PS. That could be Lackey in 2013 if we make the PS. but let's get that bicep straightened out and make the PS before we worry about who our #3 is.

    Yeah, last summer, Zito was the guy I thought we might trade CC for. softy called Zito a "union slug" and worse. I thought it might be a good way to dump much of CC's salary and get a player that might turn it around.

    Let's hope Aceves puts his head in the right place and contribute.
