Today's highlights

Bay went 4 for 4 with a double and an RBI. He's batting .464 this spring.

Two more hits for Craig Wilson. He is now clearly having another one of his hot springs. Sure, he dropped a routine fly in left last night, but that's Craig--he giveth and sometimes he taketh away. His spring hot streak may be just increasing Littlefield's leverage for a trade, but it does provide some evidence that he will hit again in real games as he did in the first half of 2004. There are rumblings every now and then that some in the Pirates organization believe he has lost bat speed and fear that he may never find it again. His dropoff in the second half in 2004 followed by his lost season last year have induced widespread skepticism. Those who think this way forget that he was also red hot in 2005 after his first hand injury and right before his second. Anyhow, it's great to see him hitting again.

Maholm pitched well for 5 innings before losing it in the sixth. That's progress.

Gonzo got his first save of the spring. I like a closer with flair, and Gonzo has it. So did Julian Taverez, whom I wish we had kept.
