NY beat TB 6-2 this afternoon, of note:

1) Gary Sanchez has been struggling at the plate so far this spring but belted two doubles deep to the gap in right center in the first 3 innings, both off Glasnow, both took a bit of hustling to get to second safely.

2) NY tried the 'opener' with Chad Green pitching the 1st (Holder scheduled to do the same tomorrow) but then Cessa came in and looked great again, third straight outing of four scoreless innings (4 2 0 0 0 5), he has a 0.53 ERA so far this spring.

Cessa and German have both stepped up this spring (German has a 1.54 ERA and a 18/2 K/BB ratio in 11.2 innings), so Gio is going to have to impress to get a shot, especially since the incentives mean every start he makes impacts NY's AAV total a bit ($3M if/when called up plus $300K for every start).

3) Greg Bird put a hanging curve from our old friend Jalen Beeks onto the roof in right field in the 5th:

Just getting home, but if he looked good, it didn't last long. Came in with a 3-0 lead and gave up 5 runs in 2 innings, lots of baserunners and a HR mixed in.

On Friday night, Stanton hit a massive HR his second time up, entirely out of the stadium to LF. His third time up, he hit another one, but this one only made the 15th row or so. It turned out that he broke the bat on contact (!!!).

Who gets the opening day thread?
I was going to do it, but if you feel inspired, go for it. I am not sure if I can watch the game live or not yet, I tried to push a meeting to today but not sure if that can happen yet or not.

Heh, ok, I will do it unless someone else speaks up. Hopefully we have more participation in this section once the season starts for real...

You've got me for the full season this go. Making it a point to try to see all 2430 in some capacity this season for some personal media reasons.

Every game from every team? How is that even possible? Even if you DVR and cut them down to an hour apiece, I don’t see how you can do that.

Multi monitor craziness on some level, three set up right now. Also figure it's not going to be every pitch, but I figure to do like a RedZone switch through during rallies and comebacks with Gameday alerts, phone pushes, it's my best and most realistic opportunity.
