Haudricourt’s notes

18 02 2008

UPDATE 02-18-08 12:15 PM – Mike Cameron did show up to camp early today.  He just arrived a little later than everyone else.  Perhaps he heard everyone else was there and decided to show up too?
Tom Haudricourt is in Phoenix with the Milwaukee Brewers, and he has the latest on the happenings in Spring Training.

  • Tom gives us a preview of the battle for the starting rotation.The only new information we can get from this article is that Haudricourt now considers Chris Capuano as a favorite for the last spot in the rotation now that Gallardo is injured. Tom considers Cappy to have his “Foot in the Door,” along with Villanueva and Bush.
  • All the starting position players checked into camp early today, except new center fielder Mike Cameron. Haudricourt attributes this to the fact that Mike is a veteran and understands that the season is a grind. There is no reason to waste energy and risk injury too early in the season.
