I'd much rather Alvarez pitch and get that big win with a packed house then Cecil. Plus Alvarez was awesome last season against Boston in his start. That first home game should be rocking

Rasmus in LF?! Hasn't played there since the Holliday acquisition.

Guy has a bomb of an arm, would be wasted in LF.
Without a doubt. But Marisnick and Gose have better arms.

If they can win and win big this year we could start to see a sharp increase in attendance which can only help.

This is so bizarre how the M's and the A's play 2 regular season games in Japan then come back to NA and play a few more ST games. I don't get why MLB does it like that.

I have no idea what possessed me to think up all of that. I haven't even watched wrestling in like 10-15 years.

Maybe it's lack-of-baseball madness.


Brings back so many childhood memories

Part of me wants to get a full night's rest to function properly at work.

The other half of me wants to watch two potential bottom feeders duke it out at 5am in the morning.

I think it's like 21-4-1 or something.

Alvarez has pitched really well, but when I last checked neither Romero or Morrow had given up a run this ST.

Lawrie looks ridiculous, but got hurt. Gose imo looked good, but won't make the team. Rasmus has struggled a little bit. Snider looked good but optioned to AAA, Thames had a good spring. Improved his defence.

Cecil has lost some velocity, looked good for most of his starts. McGowan is hurt, which sucks, but gives Drabek a chance to make the team now. He played the Yanks earlier in the week, gave up 5 hits through 5 but 0 runs.

Joey Bats is the best hitter. Ricky Romero is the best pitcher.

If you can sift through all the d-bag fashion caps, they've got the regular ones in there too.

Reports are that Luis Valbuena will be waived or traded prior to the start of the season in order to make room for Vizquel on the 40-man roster.

No real surprise there.

As far as non-onfield caps go, these two look pretty good:

I wouldn't mind getting a Canada Day Jays cap. I think these are them.



Edit: Just googled it. I don't think those are them. I'm getting a few different results.

**** it annoys me to no end that Woodward is still traveling with the team. Looks like a final cuts day lineup.

Was thinking the same thing. If they have to cut somebody from the 40man to fit Vizquel, I hope it's Woodward.

I am pretty sure we removed him off 40-man in the off-season. He was just up so the team could reward him. Valbuena will be the only taken off 40-man to clear a spot for Vizquel.

As far as I know/remember... when Vanderhurk was waived and picked up by Cleveland that freed up a spot for Vizquel.

No need to clear a spot for him as we only have 39 guys on the 40 man right now.

Regardless Valbuena will still be waived and then sent to AAA if he clears.

By my count, we have a full 40 man roster.

Yup you're right.

Vanderhurk was 41.

Seems only a matter of time before we see Valbuena DFA'd
