DUNEDIN, FLA.–Toronto Manager John Gibbons met the press as he always does after workouts stating “I don’t know if you mess with the game to much you have problems.”  This was in reference to the challenges during a game’s first six innings and plays at the plate.  “Right now they are trying to stop the cheap shots,” said Gibbons of some plays at the plate but as to a call ending the game he said, “I don’t know it’ll be interesting.”  Gibbons was ask about stretching out the team’s starters early this spring after the early part of the 2013 regular season starters we having problem getting deep into games.  “We’ll push them a little earlier… we’ll push them as far as we can but there are limitations.”  Tuesday the squad will play a four inning intra-squad game at the minor league complex starting at 11:15 AM.

Below, Brett Lawrie spends sometime stretching.  Lawrie played 107 games in 2013 batting .254 with 18 doubles, 3 triples, 11 HR and 46 RBI.
