Here's the lineup against the Twins today:
It's 42 degrees here. They're giving wind-chill warnings. Could feel like it's in the 30s. Get out the parkas. Floridians tend to get a little worked up about a cold snap.
Ken Griffey Jr. came into Dusty Baker's office this morning.
“Griff’s wondering why he’s not playing,” Baker said. “He said, ‘I’m ready.’ One more day, Dude.”
Baker isn't concerned about Griffey's bat getting ready.
“I ain’t worried about him hitting," Baker said. "He’s going to hit forever. It’s just a matter of how his legs feel. If his legs are OK, everything else is OK. I’m trying to give him some time to get his legs underneath him. He’s been running good. I’m trying to pace it properly. Him and (Adam) Dunn both. Let them get a lot of work. It’s a short spring. It’s a short time between the time they get here and the game’s start.
“The young guys are ready. It doesn’t take them as long to get in shape.”
"It gives me a chance to look at (Jerry) Gil and (Chris) Dickerson. Gil's looking great. Dickerson's looking better. They both can run and they both have outstanding throwing arms."
