    Bone spur issues in his ankle on February 14th. Surely this is fine and there is nothing to see here. Everything is fine.

    "Gibbons said Tulo has been dealing with a bone spur in his heel. Doesn't believe it'll be an issue this spring"

    Oh yeah, I mean, it's not like Tulo has a long history of leg injuries. Nothing to see here.

    My three top picks for those stories: Sanchez, Travis, Morales

    At least this year no one has unrealistic expectations of Tulo being a 5 WAR player.

    Thank god we have Diaz and Solarte this year because either one may actually be better than Tulo anyway.

    It is so nice that we are hearing about Tulo being injured literally day one and I don't have to look forward to Goins and Barney playing 100 games each.

    Yup. Acquiring actual depth behind the two glass men was huge. It should have happened sooner, but at least it happened.

    Yup, as I said in the other thread, I'm betting Diaz/Solarte end up with near everyday plate appearances by the end of the season. Tulo looks toast, and Travis has been hurt every year for four straight years. The only downside is we might see a lot of Gift as a back up, but whatever.
