Spring training can officially begin now. This morning, as I was walking from my car to the building, I saw Troy from West Virginia, clad as always in a Joe Beimel No. 97 Dodgers jersey. And no, the still-unemployed Joe Beimel wasn’t with him. Amazing to me that Beimel is still out there as a free agent and the Dodgers are still trying to find a situational lefty. But Joe’s inability to be effective in that role last year, coupled with the fact there was a new coaching staff on board that hadn’t seen him be effective in that role the previous two seasons, served to hasten his ouster from Los Angeles. Anyway, here’s hoping Troy can stay out of trouble in Glendale.
