Cactus League Game 9, Mariners at Apathy
Scott Baker vs. John Danks, 12:05
Ninth game. The novelty of just hearing baseball again has worn off…well, not completely, but it’s not exactly “thrilling” or anything. Taijuan Walker is throwing today, but not in this or any other game. James Paxton pitched (in a pitch fx park!) yesterday, so we won’t have that. We won’t get any velocity numbers, actually. This…this is kind of tough.
Hey, what about Jose Abreu, the Sox big free agent pick-up out of Cuba? The guy that Dave in his FG chat today said could be one of the top 20 hitters in baseball this year? Might be cool to hear how he fares against Baker and…what? Oh, he’s not playing.
The M’s OF picture is still up in the air a bit, and we can see how Almonte, Saunders and Ackley try…what? NONE of them? Romero, Chavez, Avery, huh?
Well, there’s always the best position player on the club, the new clubhouse leader, Robinson Can….what? Bloomquist? Oh.
1: Chavez, CF
2: Romero, LF
3: Seager, 3B
4: Hart, DH
5: Montero, 1B
6: Miller, SS
7: Avery, RF

It’s still early March.
