Me too, and I also used to work with his wife.  Did not know they were divorced.

I enjoyed his interviews on 810, and have interacted with him a couple random times in the city. Also one of my favs from my youth. This is sad, and if the report is accurate, he needs jail time. I hope the victim gets the help she needs and Brian gets the discipline and help he needs too. That is a messed up story.

I thought he was a coach on the Mizzou staff. Why was he in AZ?

I don't think he was coaching at Mizzou. Lots of former players hang around Arizona playing golf and watching BP in Feb/March

Thinking about going to Spring Training this year.  Also am extremely tempted to get this ticket deal this year.

Salvy physically falling apart was always inevitable, but I thought we had more time. I'm not ready. He's only 28

Salvy's offense was already limited. He will probably never be a very productive player again.

Yep. Get ready for a few years of Salvy as a bad DH
:adios:

Should have traded him when you had the chance.

They were never even considering trading Salvy.

yeah, sucks to lose a year for a guy whose career is likely on the downswing.  If he can come back and DH, and hit 250 with 20 or so HR's and be the clubhouse guy he's always been that will be good.

We've got some talent at catcher in the system, probably not going to help this year but after this year hopefully he can mentor one of them to be the next guy.

So 2019 is year 2 of the rebuild.  Any thoughts on when the upswing might realistically happen? I would assume 2021 might be the earliest we see any type of real competitiveness.  Farm system is still in the bottom half of the league,hopefully we drafted well in 17 and 18.

This worked out well. I'm glad we were able to replace Salvy with a good catcher.

So first time spring traininger here, what should I do besides enjoy the game?  Is there anything special I should do while I’m there?
