Daily Dose of Haudricourt: 2/26

26 02 2008

I know gorp is not a big fan of this feature, but I’m gonna stick to my guns on this feature. Tom Haudricourt is the most active reporter concerning Brewers news in Spring Training, and it would be foolish not to include his pieces on this site.

So here’s your daily dose on the 26th:

  • Tom continues his position-by-position outlook with Corey Hart. Much of it focuses on the fatherhood aspect of his life and not much on baseball, but here it is if you want to give it a look.
  • The Brewers take a break from strictly running drills and are set to play an intrasquad game today. There are two DHs on both teams as Ned Yost looks to get as many players as possible reps at the plate. Here’s how the teams stack up:”Visiting Team”

    2B Rickie Weeks
    SS J.J. Hardy
    3B Abraham Nunez
    1B Brad Nelson
    LF Ryan Braun
    CF Mike Cameron
    RF Gabe Gross
    DH Laynce Nix
    C Jason Kendall
    DH Ozzie Chavez
    RHP Jeff Suppan

    “Home Team”

    2B Hernan Iribarren
    SS Craig Counsell
    3B Bill Hall
    1B Prince Fielder
    LF Gabe Kapler
    CF Tony Gwynn
    RF Corey Hart
    DH Matt LaPorta
    C Mike Rivera
    DH Joe Dillon
    RHP Dave Bush

  • Bill Hall’s transition to third base worried the coaches a bit after Hall consistently booted tons of balls on the first day of camp. Perhaps the entire position change idea should have been avoided.24 hours later, however, Billy looked like the slick-fielding infielder Brewers fans are used to seeing. His footwork and fluidity looked fantastic, and the coaches were able to breathe a sigh of relief. Expect Billy to play a very fine third base. I hope he looks just as good as he did at shortstop, as he displayed a wide array of defensive abilities in 2006.
