We got a game today, and it can be seen! Sweet.

It’s a big-boy lineup for the White Sox, as well. Imagine, a season ago, a lineup with Anderson-Moncada-Abreu up top and Detwiler pitching was, like, just a Tuesday lineup. In 2020, Detwiler may be lucky to crack the Charlotte rotation!

Ljay Newsome starts for Seattle, and I gotta say, that is one creative spellen.

With the righthander on for Seattle, Luis Robert bats seventh. Makes some sense. But I’ll be curious to see whether Ricky Renteria will be willing to move Robert up on the order vs. southpaws, and/or how long he will wait to move him up in the order against righties. I’d like to see Robert get some leadoff reps vs. lefties here in spring training, just to increase chances of one more shot at a legged-out triple per game.
