Really great pics. Will make sure photodesk here sees them. – Mark http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com

Thanks so much for your pics and blog posts, JB. It’s so refreshing for those of us who are February-blahed-out.

Thank you for those pictures Jordan. Especially the 2 with Cecil, I wanted to see what he looked like.

Here’s a u-tube of Brett Cecil in a bull pen session. Enjoy.

It looks like Overbay is on the right tract,can this team be better this year than last??????.
gsjays nice video.

JB
Thanks for the quick reply on my earlier question. You do a great job keeping us informed and entertained. Keep up the great work!

Great pics. From how they look, Adam Loewan looks like a gym rat (don’t know if that is a good thing nowadays). Brandon League looks like a closer (the intimidating glasses and tattoos)! I’m hoping for a big year out of League, after finishing so strong last season. Great picture of Carlson, he is animated on the mound!

Did anyone check out that picture of Travis Snider JB posted? Looks like the lad has spent serious time lifting heavy, man does he look strong.

welikeroy-
League could be a dominating closer. Does anyone else see a bit of Fransico Rodriguez in him?

gjays-
Snider looks ready to mash for years to come. Think he is only 21, Wow he has a chance to be something special!

Ya, if we play Snider and not send him down. Snider is older than his age, he’s quite mature, built like a tank (5’11″ & 245) and belongs here. Of course, he’s going to go through tough spells like any rookie hitter, but Cito/Tenace could turn him into a perennial all-star. He sat beside or stood beside Cito every chance he got last year soaking in information. If JP sends him down, it’s a mistake and will slow his development and seriously delay his long term potential. No way we have Cito/Tennace quality of player development in Las Vegas.
I agree League will become a dominant closer. Anyone who can wing it at 98 mph with 8-12″ of break like him is special. Thanks to Cito for getting his confidence back that others took away.

so wonderful to see these photos, they are making my week. so wish i was down there.

Snider is a stud, thank god steriods are out of baseball so naturally gifted kids like this can set themselves apart from the rest. As for his develepment im going to have to disagree that sending him down to start the season is going to slow his development. Whether he starts the year at AAA or in the MLB he will be who is going to be in 5 years no matter what. Personally I would be able to deal with him starting at AAA getting started on a good note and have his confidence high. If he started in the Majors and struggled a bit, it could hurt his confidence for a little while. There are arguments for both sides but we will have to trust management and coaches to judge where he is at, and let them make the best descision.
