Former Bulls broadcaster Neil Solondz has been busy interviewing several on the players on the list. Fascinating backgrounder on outfielder Kevin Kiermaier here. Young outfielder Mikie Mahtook is interviewed here. Catcher Luke Maile gets some radio time here (doesn't look like he's on the short list for the Bulls, yet). Pitcher Steve Geltz has some interesting things to say about his championship year with the Bulls here.
DRaysBay has an interesting profile of catcher Curt Casali here.
Pitcher Mike Montgomery thinks he might have gotten a handle on some mechanical issues as reported here.
Veteran infielder Jayson Nix notes some differences between Yankees and Rays spring training camps here.
The Process Report profiles Rays pitcher staff possibilities here and provides thumbnails of Brad Boxberger, Josh Lueke, and Juan Carlos Oviedo.
In another blog entry, the Process Report also takes a look at the infield and gives short profiles of Wilson Betemit and Logan Forsyth.
Odds and Ends:
- Did you know that Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run in Fayetteville, North Carolina? You can look it up. It will be 100 years ago, on March 7, and the state is putting up a sign.
- A couple of minor leaguers have filed a class action suit against major league baseball. Former Bull Dirk Hayhurst has an opinion (of course he does).
