For some god forsaken reason, baseball games have begun on February 21st. Talk about the games here.
Was shocked too how early it started, most of the teams are in the Tampa area (I’m on the east coast) but I will definitely go to a couple of Mets games and try to get out to see some games in Jupiter. Though ticket prices are ridiculous for exhibition games And because of the location that's why the Mets are basically playing the same 4-5 teams the entire month (Cardinals, Marlins, Nationals, Astros with some Tigers sprinkled in, the players are too spoiled to take a 1.5-2 hour bus ride west )
Great to see baseball back for sure. Can't wait for the real thing to start in a few weeks.
Cardinals and Nats played today both wearing their red jerseys. Hopefully that doesn't happen in the regular season.
Andujar playing LF is interesting.
He was awful at 3rd. Hopefully he can find a spot at 1st or in the OF.
Blue Jays are playing the Twins today in spring training. Don't look it'll be on Sportsnet though.
Report: Jose Bautista working out as pitcher - TSN.ca
Anything to keep playing, I guess. All the best to Bautista.
That could be a fun combination if he were able to compete for a roster spot. My dad still complains to this day that we had to leave an extra inning game early when I was a toddler and a relief pitcher hit a walkoff homer.

A couple games on today including the Blue Jays and Rays. Nate Pearson is looking good thus far. Any chance he makes the team's opening day roster I wonder?
They are saying he'll likely start in AAA but will make his way onto the club this year.
Lol this is awesome
Yapson Gomez has an awesome windup.
That's pretty funny.
Still not as goofy-looking as Kimbrel's, though.
I’m at a spring training game between the A’s and Dodgers at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa (where the A’s play). I’m surprised to see that the netting hasn’t been extended at all past the dugout.
Over/Under: Judge + Stanton play 162 games?
Going to see the revamped Clover Park today, pretty good pitching matchup for a spring training game with Syndergaard vs Verlander. Saw the Mets lineup, mostly their strongest lineup minus the outfield (two non roster guys starting with Marisnick at DH) but JD Davis returns from injury. However not the best Florida weather so far, it’s warm but cloudy and very windy
Not sure if anyone is watching the Giants game, but they had Gabe Kapler on for that entire half inning and he was talking about wanting to see how pitchers go through stress innings in Spring Training. It was a fantastic interview and when he was hired I wasn't sure I liked it. I think I'm starting to come around now.
I wonder if the corona virus outbreak will play a part and cancel any spring training games?

Now that Verlander will miss time, Houston better get an experienced innings-eater on an affordable short contract. What about Mike Fiers?
