Scan says Andrew Cashner was mowing down batters in their first live batting practice sesh yesterday. He also likes the way Mark Kotsay is interacting with the team, because he isn't annoying like
Orlando Hudsonother veteran players.

Corey breaks down photo day. The guys with the least service time get the early appointments. He also posted some video fo Cashner throwing. I think my favorite parts of Corey's posts are the little human interest snippets that he bullet points at the end. Like I'm seriously interested in the fact that Hundley and Balsley won their fantsy football league.
- A day at Spring Training with Cameron Maybin " Padre Knows Best
When the Padres Media team isn't calling us nerds on Twitter (takes one to know one) they're updating their blog "Padre knows Best" (see what I mean). Yesterday they gave us a day in the life of Cameron Maybin at Spring Training. To me the Spring Training workouts seem real easy. It's just a lot of standing around, light jogging, stretching, hitting in the batting cages and a few reps in the weight room. Easy peasy.

These kids crack me up for some reason. I disagree with pretty much all of their opinions especially in regards to Orlando Hudson but I do agree that Will Venable is tall. The kid on the right makes me nervous how he claps so much, but the kid on the left has a calming effect on me by the way he runs his hands through his hair. They are the yin and yang of baseball vlogging.
