    Weaver started, gave up 4 runs in 2/3 inning
    Merrill Kelly gave up 2 runs.

    Rest by people I would be surprised to see on the Opening Day roster

    Yup, thanks. Although the end-of-game box score I saw accounts for only 7 2/3 innings pitched. OK, it's only a third of an inning short, with the home team winning.

    Despite the lofty batting averages of most of the D-backs starting position players, they are
    not scoring runs.

    While the opponents are beating up our Minor League pitchers (see below). If they can do it to
    us, why can't we do it to them? And not leave MadBum's one run leave him in a 3-hit shutout.

    I hope it is not going to be another season of LOB's.

    And, I am sad to say, my boy Kevin Cron is failing miserably with regular at-bats. I am really
    disappointed in his being hitless so far. So I guess Walker and Lamb will be the regular rotation
    at 1B again this season, with Lamb as backup 3B as well. Some power, but not difference makers.

    BTW, Yasmany Tomás got another hit and is batting .750. We need to trade him to an A.L. team
    to DH or keep him as a pinch hitter and earn part of his exorbitant salary.

    And the Dodgers jump out to a 6-0 lead after 2 innings. 3 in the 1st and 3 more in the 2nd.

    What the hell is going on with this pitching staff? :shrug:

    Maybe this staff isn't as good as they appear? Or maybe we aren't even into March yet and this isn't time to panic?

    I was never super high on the rotation but it has nothing to do with the first week of spring training. We know what Madbum is at this point of his career; top 30-35 starter. Ray is in a contract year and should have a good season. I think Gallen could be due for some regression if he doesn’t improve his control. I thought his ERA was lucky considering his walk-rate.

    Everyone else is a question mark for various reasons.
