Brian McTaggart has the Spring Training preview at MLB.com. How does he break it down?
1. Who's the catcher?
McTaggart puts Quintero at C2, regardless of whomever comes out of Spring Training with C1 locked up.
2. Who's the closer?
3. Who's SP4/SP5?
McTaggart gives Norris the likely SP4 spot, and says:
Veteran Brian Moehler will likely get the final spot if hard-throwing Felipe Paulino doesn't cut it. Paulino might be on his last chance with the Astros to prove he can pitch at this level.
This is something we've discussed in length, but I really hope that Moehler gets the SP6 spot, and anchors the bullpen.
