Hey, guess what?! Today's game is the last Spring Training game I won't see live! I'm traveling to Phoenix Friday morning to see the A's take on the Giants in what will be a night-game extravaganza; tickets selling for football-game prices, sold out many times over, with everyone hyped about a real, live, night baseball game between the Bay Area rivals. I'll see the A's play the rest of the weekend, so expect a full, detailed report from our observations (read: Nico's analysis) with pictures (those will be mine)!
Today's game will feature Daric Barton at first base, Vogt as the catcher, as both continue to battle for roster sports, and we'll see Jake Elmore hold down the shortstop job today. We're still worried about Cespedes; he'll be showcased in the 5th spot in today's lineup.
Are you ready for some baseball?! 11 days until Opening Day!
The game will begin at 1:05.
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
