Woo hoo, game thread! Preseason, but none the less. Just make sure you don't strain fingers when typing.
Oh crud, it's the Phillies announcers.
first run and first injury
Not the starting infield.
 It's a beautiful thing! I checked out the Regular Season schedule yesterday and was happy to realize that thanks to an early spring break, I'll get to watch opening day AND the Yankee home opener in their entirety. Haven't been able to do that in about 15 years. : )
Curtis with a jack!
David Phelps, huh?
Could he be good?
Well, he faced six guys. He struck one of them out, and against the other five he got five outs in five (total) pitches. He threw all eight of his pitches for strikes.
Your mission, Mr. Phelps, should you decide to accept it...
Nice play Willis. Hope he's back.
Also, nice nap.
Hey... I don't need PBP, but a bit more detail would be helpful.
On the 'eeeeek' frontier:
The Carteret County Sheriff's Office said the 40-year-old [Brien] Taylor of Beaufort was arrested Thursday. A statement said undercover narcotics agents bought a large quantity of cocaine and crack cocaine from Taylor over several months.
Dang, very windy.
Man... de Jusus has hit a HR for the M's already.
The Jesus I mean.
Dellin is wild today.
 I'm actually watching -- it's on the MLBN.
Cole Garner kid looks good at the plate.
 And did you see what happened to him (Montero)? Two straight foul balls struck him under the mask, and the second one dropped him on his back, like an uppercut. Wedge says he's okay, though.

Tuned in just long enough to Nuñez further solidify his position for BUIF. And the Phillies announcers were pretty decent, I thought.
So, baseball is back. Sort of.
