Mitt Romney: Looks and acts like a major-leaguer but has so many different uniforms in his locker that it’s hard to figure out which he’ll wear on any given day. Appears to think that paying customers and scouts have amnesia and won’t remember back in the day when he talked like he played for another team. Capable of buying his way into the game. Early book: big hole in his swing and can’t handle inside fast balls thrown by media.
Bench strength for this club: pathetic. A bunch of hanger-ons, misfits and bust-outs; right-handers all, like Brownback, Tancredo and Hunter. No shot.
So, that’s a quick peek at spring training. It’s still quite awhile before inter-squad play begins on the road in places like Iowa, New Hampshire and California. Fasten your seat belts everybody. It’s a long season.
