Free Brandon Wood

Brandon Wood had two hits yesterday against the Dodgers and followed that up with two more hits today. He has raised his batting average to .300 for the spring and although that's good news; there's even better news today.

According to a report in the L.A. Times - Wood has the inside track on the third base job. Mike Scioscia said, "He's a guy we would like to take the position."

As I was wondering what to blog about today (I know it's been a few days), I was contemplating a discussion about the questions that were still unanswered. Well, the biggest question of the spring has been answered in my opinion.

Brandon Wood is going to be the man. His time has finally come. Now, I know there are some people out there who are waiting for him to fail. Whatever. If you are one of those people, I'm offering you a free pass today. Time to get on board. Time to get ready for the Brandon Wood/Kendry Morales era.

You know this is a good thing. In fact, it's a great thing.

Time to watch an infield that is totally home grown. Think about it. Morales, Howie Kendrick, Erick Aybar and now Brandon Wood. I'm thinking about a new tradition. I'm thinking about a four-some that could make history together. I think I'm getting excited. In fact, I know I am. Opening day must be close.

Twenty days until opening day.


  1. I love the idea of this home-grown infield growing up and getting better and better together. It's gonna be fun to see them out there together this year.

  2. I heard an interview on XM a week or so ago and Sosh said that BWood is a GG caliber defender too. When I heard that I got excited, for some reason I thought he was only average at best.
