Pedro Feliz had another good day. After hitting jack in the first week or more of the spring, suddenly his average is up over .360. Today he went 3 for 3 with a double, a HR, 3 RBI and a run scored. Pedro's HR was a hard hit shot, the opposite way to RF. I had quit scorekeeping by then......but I believe his double was also an opposite field job. Pedro has always hit better when he goes to RF........maybe he has finally learned that. OK...I don't really believe that......but it sounded good.

How was Feliz 3-for-3 when you said he grounded out to short in the first inning?

Simple.....I looked at my scorebook wrong. It was the batter before Feliz, Ray Durham that grounded to SS in the 1st. I corrected it. Thanks for keeping me on my toes Daniel.

As a postscript, today's Mercury News' Giants Notes had this:

"Pedro Feliz has a new approach at the plate and it seems to be working. He was 3 for 3 with an opposite-field home run, a double and a single to boost his spring average to .364.

Feliz has worked to limit his stride and stay back on pitches, allowing him to use the whole field. But he isn't ready to pronounce himself fixed just yet.

"It's something I've got to get used to," he said."

-Amen

Don't get sucked in Sherm. By May 1st Pedro will be back to trying to pull everything. Count on it.

Pitch recognition still seems to be the problem and will always be a problem for Feliz.

It would be great if Stella got his groove...

But it's WAY too early to say.

Nothing suggests that for Pedro yet...

anothing example of the mainstream press laying hard on the numbers, not the reality...
