I only count 1 game on Sportsnet (March 18)

There are a bunch of other games on the MLB Network, but I'm fairly sure that's not available in Canada.

Couple highlights from today's intersquad game.
- Snider RBI double
- Rasmus HR
- Ewan Crawford gets KJ 4-3, then Ks Bautista and Lind
- Ben Francisco catches Bautista liner in right, throws out Escobar at third on tag

(All ST updates via @ShiDavidi)

Interested to see what Crawford can bring. He's a complete unknown as far as I know, but I've heard some good things through camp.

Saw that on Sportscentre last night/this morning. There was also an interview with Terry Francona and John Farrell.

I'm so pumped for this year, I think we are going to be in the playoff race in september, and we'll either make it or come extremely close. I think our pitchers are going to step up this year, and rasmus and snider will live up to being top prospects this year. I think Romero is going to establish himself as a top 10 pitcher this year. I love the potential on our team.

I'm liking Francona as an analyst/host.

Farrel seems to be accepting interviews left right and center these days. Refreshing. On a semi-unrelated note, I really respect the fact that he came out and said he mishandled the bullpen. Alot of Managers/coaches would be much too stubborn to admit when they're wrong.

Same

I'm interested in seeing what happens in LF the most. I like Snider's potential a lot better, as most people, but I think Thames runs away with it.

Yeah he said that stuff at the end of the year and I was impressed he admitted it. He did handle it poorly and did started adjusting towards the end of season after getting a better understanding of the pitchers he did and Frank also became "the guy" in the second half. He shouldn't have to worry about his bullpen or closer situation this year though.

There should be a lot more defined roles in the bullpen, bench and in the line-up.

It's part of the set I did for last season. If you're willing to hang on for the start of the regular season, there will be a new set released including a new Lawrie one.

I wonder how much, if any of his willingness to do interviews comes from wanting to publicize/hype the team more?

1. Yunel Escobar (R) SS
2. Kelly Johnson (L) 2B
3. Jose Bautista (R) RF
4. Adam Lind (L) 1B
5. Edwin Encarnacion (R) DH
6. Colby Rasmus (L) CF
7. Brett Lawrie (R) 3B
8. Eric Thames (L) LF
9. J.P. Arencibia (R) C

Thats the lineup today. Basically looks like what the opening day lineup should.

Brett Cecil vs James McDonald

Very excited. I expect the Blue Jays to make the playoffs. We've definitely improved and have some good prospects developing for the future.

Love the line-up. A bit of everything, and some balance. Lawrie will get his chance to SMASH the ball
