Halfway point (ish) quick ST hitting analysis

It's hard to do anything with spring training stats, but here's an attempt to gauge who's looking good this spring and who isn't. It'll be interesting to see how these observations pan out into the next two weeks. 

Interesting things to note so far:

Fred Lewis has touched as many bags as Uribe and Renteria combined, one is expected to be DFA'd, the other two are expected to start.

DeRosa, in a third of the ABs, has matched Renteria for hits, and has more than Uribe. 

Fred Lewis, with Aubrey Huff, also leads the team in jacks. Is he finding his powerstroke or something? Huff's been hitting, but good lord is he scary with a glove.

Buster, Panda, and Bowker are leading the team in RBIs. One of them is expected to make the team. I'd be interested to see the numbers for 2-out rbis, but my connection is slow and I'm not going to look through every box score. 

Molina has walked as much or more than everyone but Bowker, and he has struck out once. What the fuck. He got off to a good start, but it remains to be seen how well he sustains it. He didn't exactly do well today. As hot as Molina is/was, his minor league not-ready-yet competition has paced him perfectly, outhitting him and driving in more runs. Buster's also thrown out more runners. But that's news to no one, probably.

Who has the most extra base hits this spring? Another non-starter: Andres Torres.

Who has the most Total bases+walks? Aaron Rowand with 20.

A quick hot or not (MLB and AAA guys):

Hot:

Rowand, Buster, Bowker, Torres, F. Sanchez (grounders baby)

Not:

Uribe and Renteria. 

I'm sure this means nothing to a lot of people, but I think some of it is interesting to at least take note of. Based off these first 13 games I hope the organization is giving some new thought to the projected lineup for opening day, but there's about three weeks left to see how things pan out.

Feel free to celebrate, gripe, qualify, append, or vomit.
