A look around the teams in Florida

With the rain finally coming to an end, after a 2 day stretch of nothing but it, the Florida-based teams got back in full swing the last couple of days.  Many of the top pitchers took to the mound today, as did the big prospects in the game.  Here is a look at how the teams did and what some of the stand-out lines looked like.

Braves (SS) 8 Blue Jays 5

ATL: Heyward 2-4, R, RBI, .444 AVG (looked great and is everything that is advertised; sure rookie of the year if stars are aligned)

TOR: Frasor 0.1 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 BB (with scouts from the Cubs, Twins and Padres on hand, Frasor struggled and was eventually pulled after managing only 1 out)

Red Sox 6 Twins 4

BOS: Hermida 2-3, 2 RBI (looking good after a solid year for Florida)

MIN: Slowey 3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 4 K (has lines like this one game then gets roughed up the next)

Cardinals 7 Nationals 3

STL: Wainwright 4 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 BB (the Cy-Young hopeful is a sure All-Star gain this year)

WAS: Strasburg 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K (looked great again; has not allowed a run this spring and is hopeful of a starting role for major league team)

Yankees 5 Pirates 10

NYY: Sabathia 4.1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB (another bad outing and left the start as well; no details on the injury)

PIT: Crosby 3-3, 3 R, 2 HR (3), 3 RBI (yes this is Bobby Crosby; the one that was supposed to be an Athletic for life!)

Phillies 3 Orioles 4

PHI: Utley 1-3, RBI, K, .438 AVG (ready for the regular season; a rare road game for the starters; Howard, Rollins etc)

BAL: Tejada 0-2, .176 AVG (not making an early impression yet)

Mets 1 Marlins 5

NYM: Santana 4 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 4 K (looked like the ace that he is today)

FLA: Ramirez 1-3, RBI (not many of the Marlins' starters did much of anything today)

Rays 6 Tigers 9

TB: Rodriguez 2-4, HR (4), 2 RBI

DET: Jackson 3-4, 3 R (a good piece in the trade involving Granderson)

Braves (SS) 5 Astros 8

ATL: McCann 2-2, 2 HR (2), 3 RBI, .667 AVG (#2 in fantasy value behind Mauer)

HOU: Myers 4 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K (the choice of signing Myers may come back to hurt them)

Fantasy Player to watch for: Blue Jays OF Adam Lind (swing has not changed since last season; may hit 40 HR and 40 doubles along with .310 AVG and 120 RBI)
