You know, Craig Monroe must have really taken Charlie and me arguing that the Pirates would be better off with five left-handed outfielders than they would with four lefties and him pretty personally. Today, he teed off on the Twins for three home runs, giving him six on the spring. Does anyone see this guy getting cut after a day like this?
Of course, it’s fair to note that Nate McLouth and Ryan Doumit also went yard today, meaning that the wind was probably blowing out pretty stiffly at McKechnie today. Of course, that analysis is coming from a guy who’s hit three home runs in his life (two when I was 12, one when I was 14). I’d just rather that he did this when there was something on the line.
