So, we're about halfway through the spring. Where do we stand with our backup middle infielder competition? I'm thinking LaRoche is the clear leader. Tolleson's not hitting and his fielding (from what I've seen/heard) hasn't been spectacular. Not sure what happened to Sogard. Is he injured? He only has 14 ABs and I haven't seen him listed in a lineup recently. I thought we'd be seeing more of him at SS. And what about Pennington at this point. I haven't seen any defensive issues. He's not hitting anything yet...still not swinging from the right. Let's have a vote because, as we all know, baseball is anything from a democracy!
