Boof made his spring training debut against the Cincinnati Reds today, and it didn't go very well. Our dear Boof lasted only one inning, giving up 3 runs and 5 hits, including a two-run home run to Scott Hatteberg. He did manage to strike out a batter.
For his first time out, I suppose he didn't do too terribly. Boof has always been a Bob Wickman-style starter. He gets the job done, but you're usually too busy cowering in fear to notice.
Hey, with Sidney Ponson guaranteed a spot, Boof could decide to take up the left-handed knuckleball and keep his starting spot.
