‘Express’ Train to Opening Day Please

34 Days until Opening Day 2011

The Phillies kicked off their spring season yesterday with an exhibition game against Florida State’s college team. The Pirates and Tigers both open up today as well against smaller college programs. The first “real” baseball game of the Spring Training season was a 3:05 start in the Cactus League between the San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks. Tim Lincecum and Joe Saunders started for each team, respectively. Both were banged around a little bit but can’t read very much into a late February start. Xavier Nady took Madison Bumgarner deep in the 3rd; a good start for him as he tries to make the D’Backs roster and possibly win a starting job at first or in the outfield. Giants 7 Diamondbacks 6.

Tomorrow is the official Grapefruit League opener with the Yankees and Phillies down in Florida. WTP will attempt to have a running commentary during the game, or as much of the game as possible(Syracuse Orange hoops will be in the 2nd half against Georgetown at the start of the game.)
