Two spring training games in one day. That means two times the stats which don't matter and two times the needless panic about every minor failing!

I will not be able to do a recap after the game today, which means that I am opening this one up for a last minute FanPost Recap contest! I'll put a sign-up for each game in the comments, and if you'd like to recap that game then respond to the corresponding comment. If you're the only person to sign up for that game, then you automatically win and your recap will go up on the front page sometime in the next 24 hours!
