Matt Cain was the first of the pitchers to perform today. Matt was throwing VERY hard and looked to be in the zone on almost every pitch. Most of the batters preferred to just watch his pitches go by and I could count on one hand the number of times contact of any kind was made. Matt mixed in a few off-speed pitches, including a 12-6 curveball that just about caused poor Eli Whiteside to screw himself into the ground. I think Matt is ready to go......He was probably throwing closer to 100% of strength than any other pitcher I have seen so far.

Does it look like the news reports of Cain being in better shape were true?

Hard to say whether he is in better shape....but he is definitely quite a bit thinner.

Michael said...

He does look thinner in the picture. Just was not sure if it was the angle.

What about Molina? From the pics, it looks like he is in similar shape as last year.

I have heard people say that Molina looks like he lost a few pounds....but I really don't see it.

Hopefully Cain has his breakout season this year.
