"We've got some good arms."
You hear that a lot around the Ed Smith Stadium complex. I watched Edinson Volquez, Johnny Cueto and Josh Roenicke throw live batting practice and didn't see one solidly hit ball.
Roenicke has the best arm in camp. Volquez is a notch behind. One scout told that Cueto has a chance to be best of them all. "He's got a great arm and he throws strikes."
It's going to be interesting when they try to put this club together at the end. As noted in the previous post, everyone in the mix for pitching staff has options.
--Another guy who looks good is left-hander Scott Sauerbeck. "His ball is really moving," Brandon Phillips said.
--Todd Coffey had a particularly rough live BP session. Norris Hopper took him out to opposite field. Adam Dunn hit balls out on back-to-back swing. And Ken Griffey Jr. hit one over the batter's eye in center. Ouch.
--Griffey is swinging the bat well. He took Aaron Harang deep as well.
--This isn't an observation because I didn't see him, but people tell me Kent Mercker threw the ball well.
