I’m going to Arizona for spring training the second week of March. I think I may need a bodyguard if I go to Giants camp in Scottsdale, though. All of these tweets are from last night:

For the record, here is the handsome manager list again. I feel like, after all of this, Bochy should move up the list next year based on his sense of humor alone. A good sense of humor is extremely attractive.

Get well soon, Boch. Not that you need to be at 100% strength to pound my scrawny butt into goo if you choose too and like I deserve, but still.

On Thursday, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that the Braves and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarría reunited on a one-year, $1 million contract.

Hechavarría, 30, began the season with the Mets but was released in mid-August and joined the Braves shortly thereafter. He enjoyed more success in Atlanta, albeit in a smaller sample size. In aggregate, Hechavarría hit .241/.299/.443 with nine home runs and 33 RBI over 221 trips to the plate. More importantly, he provided versatility with above-average defense.

The Braves are banking on Hechavarría doing more of the same in 2020 as a backup infielder. He will spell Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, Johan Camargo, and Austin Riley as needed.
