As someone who has been bothered by this for years I was very glad to hear Ozzie's comments about this on Comcast Sports Chicago tonight.

What Ozzie said was that, unlike past years, when he would still be playing minor league players and guys with zero chance to make the club right up until the start of the regular season, this year the final week of spring training his "regular nine guys would be playing eight or nine innings and getting four or five at bats..."

He blamed himself for the team getting off to the slow starts they have had and that he "hopes" this will correct that problem.

Considering who they have to play in April, it better. Either way I'm still very happy to see this. It's about time, there's no reason to see double AA guys playing five and six innings three days before the bell rings.
