Report from Lakeland

I arrived in Lakeland yesterday and was able to watch a night game in shorts and a tee shirt which is something I still can't do up north. The Lakeland Flying Tigers won 8-7 as the parent Tigers continued to lose. Rick Porcello pitches tonight so I'm looking forward to that.

I got a chance to see Joel Zumaya and Fernando Rodney working out this morning. Zumaya threw maybe about 60 pitches and didn't seem to be holding anything back. It appeared to be maximum effort with a healthy grunt on many of his pitches. Fernando Rodney threw fewer pitches than Zumaya but was throwing hard and looked smooth. I'm neither a scout nor a doctor but they both looked fine, no evidence of pain or discomfort.

    Have fun down there. Nice to get your firsthand perspective of Zoom and Rodney. Looking forward to your thoughts on seeing Porcello pitch.
