Open Thread: Spring Training - A's vs. D-backs

New, 393 comments

Hello old friends, and welcome to another glorious day of bA’seball. I mean, the fact that I haven’t seen the light of day since December does not mean I have lost the ability to picture a partisan crowd under a spectacular sky, while the boys in green and gold ready themselves for a friendly affair with the Arizona ball club.  In fact, such a predicament has only enhanced my thirst for all things baseball-y.

 

Lucky for you, this pity party ends in about two seconds, because who really wants their Cactus League action served with a side of "Waahhhh"?

 

Last time I checked in on the Home Nine, they were a tad bit healthier than they are at the present time, but I guess we have all come to expect warranty issues with our Athletics.  You get what you pay for, I s’pose.

 

So sit back, grab whatever beverage you are allowed to throw back at your place of business, and prepare yourself for three hours of diamond awesomeness.
