Glaus showing plate prowess in Braves camp

Mar 10, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

glaus braves.JPGBraves first baseman Troy Glaus had another strong day at the dish Wednesday, and is now 9-for-12 in Grapefruit League play with eight consecutive hits.  He’s trying to keep things in perspective, but it’s great to see him performing so well after failing to register more than 30 at-bats last season for the Cardinals due to a variety of injuries.

“It’s nice to see hits, it’s positive reinforcement,” said the
6-foot-6 converted third baseman. “But I’ve been doing this long enough that it doesn’t matter right
now. I’ve had good springs, I’ve had bad springs, I’ve had in-between
springs. It doesn’t matter.”

Glaus, 33, has also looked strong defensively at the first base position this spring.  He is a .255/.359/.497 career hitter with 304 home runs over his first 12 major league seasons.  The Rotoworld
Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide
, packed to the brim with projections on all MLB hitters, has him hitting .252/.359/.463
with 26 homers and 87 RBI this season.  For now, that all looks perfectly attainable.

    Does Craig know you’re dating his team while his back is turned?
    Craig, you need another team to root for. Being a Braves fan is looking more and more like being married to Madonna.
    Incidentally, news like this, and the increasingly frightening accounts of Kid Bomber, make it more of a given that the Feesh are going to be a fourth place team this year – but, as JoeyB never tires of pointing out, they are going to be a competitive fourth place team.

    No, sir — it’s the complete opposite. Craig only lets me have supper if I make mention of the Braves in a post each night.
    Tough but fair.

    Oh, I get it now. This is a sort of virtual “take my wife…please.”
