Drew Litton: Spring Training Prognosticator
This wraps up my cartoon coverage from Spring Training. Hope you've enjoyed the show. It's been kind of hard to get a feel for things. The Rockies, I think, are experiencing a little post-Series hangover. Their season went so much longer last year that it takes a little steam out of the engine. It might be May before they emerge from that.
A few names to remember... Dexter Fowler is a keeper, but might not be ready to play in the Bigs for at least another season. Ian Stewart looks good and should be ready soon, in fact, possibly causing some over crowding in the infield. Casey Weathers seems to be the real deal on the mound.
So do I really expect the Rocks to win the West? Why not? They have as good a shot as everyone else. Staying injury free is always the key.
