Poor spring doesn’t concern Millwood

I dunno. If I had a poor 2000 season and followed it up with a poor 2001 spring I’d be concerned.

It's almost as if Spring stats are a Rorschach test: if they are bad, you can say, "Spring Training numbers are meaningless"; or, you might conclude that "Millwood's 17+ ERA is an ill omen for his 2001 campaign, especially in light of his struggles in 2000." What is undeniable, however, for all hitters and pitchers, whether their Spring numbers are good or bad, is that the sample size is very small.
