Observations from CBR

So I was out at the Ranch over the weekend and had a good time walking around and watching baseball. Here are some of the things I thought were interesting: Good new, bad new- Puig was by far the best hitter on display. He was indeed crushing balls and hitting everything hard. The bad news is that the boys did a ton of hitting on the day the pitchers were given an off day. It's been reported that Puig's throwing shoulder was sore, but at the end of the day I saw him favoring his left shoulder and throwing his batting gloves and helmet into his bag. Yesterday he looked like a mummy with both shoulders wrapped in ice. Kershaw still the hardest worker on the team- Yesterday while most of the pitchers were doing agility drills he was busy running foul poles. It was a warm day and he was showing the sweat he was building up. After he was done an executive asked how many he had run. Kersh said 14 and the exec asked, "Only 14"? Without missing a beat Kersh responded that he should come talk to him in the weight room and then proceeded to work out for a long while. Chili Buss- I asked him how he was enjoying his Big League Camp experience and he had an interesting response, at least I thought it was interesting. He said on the Big League side there's is more time to actually work on things which he said was a good thing. After he said it I thought about it and it's true that you see a lot more extra work being available on the Big League side. I hadn't really thought about that before. Tommy Davis and Koufax- While Tommy was watching pitchers throw to hitters he glanced over at Koufax and remarked that he remembered a session where Sandy was throwing particularly hard (He joked 105 MPH...at least i think he was joking) and he looked at one pitch, stepped out of the cage and said, "Next!" Joc- One Dodger observer commented that Joc might have the best hitting hands of ANYBODY in camp. That's all for now. I'm due to go back one more time and I'll let you guys, and gals, know what I see.
