    Here's a nice article on Chili Davis, who is the new hitting coach for the Athletics.

    I'll always have a soft spot for Chili Davis. I enjoyed his time with the Yankees very much.

    Hector Noesi is slotted third in the Seattle rotation, according to this report from the Seattle Times:

    Opponents have hit .176 against Noesi in his two Spring Training starts covering five innings:

    Michael Pineda started the 2011 season as the No. 5 in the Seattle rotation.

    I'm sure this will pop up in the Red Sox thread, but I never visit that monstrosity so I putting it here:
    http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/b...2&pos=breaking
    For openers, Alfredo Aceves will be the Red Sox’ closer.

    As the Red Sox began their final Opening Day tuneup with a two-hour workout here today, manager Bobby Valentine announced that Aceves will get the first chance to pitch in a save situation. He gets the nod over Mark Melancon, who will remain in his role as the primary setup man even after going 20-for-25 in save opportunities for the Astros last season. Andrew Bailey, slated to be the Red Sox’ closer, is undergoing right thumb surgery today in Cleveland and may miss 4-5 months.

    “(Aceves) loves competition,” Valentine said. “I think he’s one of the better competitors that I’ve seen. I could be wrong. I haven’t seen him up close and personal in battle, but I believe that he’s a very good competitor, to say nothing of a very good pitcher.”
    I always liked Ace and hated to see him end up in a Red Sox uniform.

    FYI, Noesi vs. Darvish at 5:00 Monday (tomorrow).

    Maybe you can enjoy the fact that he's allowed all 5 batters he's faced to reach this year.

    But of course. Just because I'd always liked him doesn't preclude the fact that I want him to suck in a Red Sox uniform.

    his great spring is carrying into the regular season, though on our roster as the 4th OF or right handed DH he wouldnt have gotten much playing time

    Damon no longer available, folks

    I find the opt out clause "a certain number of days after Grady Sizemore returns" odd. I know opt outs on minor league deals are quite common but I don't recall too many (if any) in season MLB opt out clauses.
