I tend not to pay too much attention on pitching during the early to mid going of spring training as the players tend to work on their weakness stuff and trying to get their mechanics in control or working on their mechanics. I rather have my guys pitch like shit during spring training, with the end of spring training (last week) would be a good time to start seeing some positives.
If they are pitching like shit in the last week of spring training, then I'd be a little concerned. I know they say compeitition (sp) is all that and while it does hold true, sometimes, there really isn't, depending on each team, I suppose.
