If Arod is predicting an MVP for Jeter, isn’t he predicting a mediocre season for himself? Given the two players ceilings, even if Jeter has his best season ever, Arod would have to have an off year for Jeter to be better.
I love spring training… everyone is in the best shape of their lives, birds are singing, children are laughing… hope springs eternal!!!
Seriously, doesn’t it just get to be a bit much?
As for Abreu- spring training gets a little long towards the end, but players need it. He was almost completely inactive for quite a while last March, and it showed. With the benefit of hindsight, it probably would have been best to start him on the DL last season.
So glad, these guys reported in good shape. Last year was brutal in the beginning because guys reported out of shape. Real professionals should never have let this happen. Glad, they got the new message. Being in shape can only help the team.
