    And I wasn't pointing anything in OBM's direction..."your" meant the board in general.

    I'm not a big fan of Dusty Baker but even I'm sure he has more important things to do than make up lies about Harang having a good inside fastball in a spring training game.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Sorry... didn't mean to infer that you were. I was agreeing with your point on all accounts.

It's highly unlikely that he's going to perform poorly in the spring and all of a sudden revert to All Star form when the regular season starts.
    Yet I bet there are examples of this happening all the time.

    Cliff Lee couldn't get anyone out in 2007.

    In spring training in 2008, he couldn't get anyone out, yet followed up those dismal showings by being the majors best pitcher last year.

    It's spring training again, and he can't get anyone out.

    Spring traing means little at the best and the worst of times.
