Those are Jason Romano's Spring Training stats. See, I told you, Spring Training numbers don't matter.

Meanwhile, Joe Thurston could have the best attitude in the world and still wonder how Romano could be on the team instead of him.

Yeah, Romano on the team is a huge upset in my mind - bigger than Steve Colyer or Tom Martin. I'm not going to put too much significance on it, though. I'm still surprised that in the end, the Dodgers didn't go with what could have, at worst, been a double platton of Cesar Izturis and Alex Cora at shortstop, and Thurston and Jolbert Cabrera at second base. However, I'm still gonna bet that Thurston is back up by May 1, meaning that Cabrera can go back to being the true Derrel Thomas-like utility man instead of platooning at second base, and Romano can go to Las Vegas.

But finally, this battle for the 25th roster spot - baseball's version of college basketball's NIT - is over. Let's remember to count how many games Romano helps the Dodgers win this year.
