That’s darn near the opening day starting lineup. Still running out CFer’s in the leadoff slot.

Ok, I was gonna say let’s call him Frankie until Kerosene appeared… Didn’t take too long :(. Wilin has to catch that

That’s the way to grab that starting job by the neck and refuse to let go of it, Frankie! Can’t throw a strike. Meanwhile, all of our weaknesses and strengths on display in just one inning. Wilin: can’t catch, but can throw! Frankie: can throw, but can’t throw a strike! Arenado: can pick! Blackmon: can’t even try to draw a walk ahead 2-0. UPDATE: I think Frankie is settling down. The intense pressure of spring training televised games got to… Read more »

He already choked away his chance to start, though. I guess we are glad of that?! And whoa, bloop double for K! Maybe they’ll cut him slack for his bat! Another whoa, did he pull something on the big hit? Good grief… Frankie I’m still trying to pull for you, for some reason…

Roxnsox, join the Cisco-Ag club. We are all former Frankie haters (well, haters is too harsh, but you know what I mean) who now find ourselves rooting for the guy to finally make it.

Well, it wasn’t a work of art, but for a 5th starter it’s acceptable-4 IP, 1 H, 0 ER. The 3 BBs were concerning, but would we rather have Frankie or the dregs that were paraded last season (Manship, Oswalt, Francis, McHugh, Garland, etc)?

My point exactly, Cisco. Better to roll the dice with Frankie than to bring in another “safe” veteran who turns out to be anything but. Given his contract and lack of options, I think Frankie just backed into the 5th starter job tonite.

Why do announcers always say “this guy LOVES to play” ?! Do any of them not, so much, they’re just there being bored or something?! Gah. Pet announcer peeve

Cubs LF and SS collide on a pop-up. Let’s hope the baseball gods don’t think to similarly punish Tulo and Cargo for playing to avoid injury. Apparently you can’t get hurt playing LF, so nevermind.

Benny is dancing in the streets – Blackmon takes a big step towards being half of the CF platoon.
