So, a full two weeks of Spring Training games have been played and to start the chatter, here is where I believe things would stand if the season started tomorrow:
Catchers(2): Kratz, Quintero. Ruiz serving his suspension
Infield(6): Howard, Utley, Rollins, Young, Frandsen, Galvis
Outfield: Brown, Revere, Mayberry, Nix, Young. If Young is not ready for the start of the season, I see Pete Orr making the team, as he can play both the INF and OF and can run. Ruf simply is too much of a defensive liability at this stage to make the team. He needs to play 50-60 consecutive games in LF in Lehigh Valley.
Starters: Hamels, Halladay, Lee, Kendrick, Lannan
Relievers: Papelbon, Adams, Durbin, Bastardo, Aumont, Diekman, Cook.
Stutes and DeFratus still have a legitimate shot to make up some ground and knock out Cook, while Horst and Valdes could still easily overtake Diekman. Joe Savery has yet to give up a run, but I saw just about enough of him at the major league level last year.
