Cactus League Photos

Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR. See full photo set at Flickr. How cool was Friday’s game? I’m talking about all the Ducksnorters, of course.

The Padres aren’t well represented, although Andy Hawkins’ no-hit loss as a member of the Yankees shows up here (and I suppose if you really want to push it, Josh Barfield’s dad played in that game). Jason Bay? [...]
