Headed to the Fort
The team bus left this morning at 7 a.m. for Fort Myers and the game will be televised on ESPN at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT. That means three of our next four games will be on TV for you all to watch, as Saturday and Sunday will be on KCAL 9, with Vin Scully live from Florida.
I’m staying at Dodgertown to work on various China- and Coliseum-related things, but I’ll obviously be watching the game from afar.
For the person who mentioned James McDonald, I’m not sure when he’s scheduled to pitch but I’m fairly certain there’s nothing wrong with him. I think the issue is just that we have a ton of pitchers in camp this spring, mostly because of the trip to China that will create the split-squads, so you’ll probably see more of him once Tommy is managing half the team here in Vero. It seems like most of the guys getting work in right now are the veterans who are more likely to make the Opening Day roster and I think it’s safe to say that James likely isn’t in that group just yet, given that he hasn’t pitched at Triple-A yet. But, there was a great article on him in the Orange County Register recently by columnist Mark Whicker, so check it out if you haven’t seen it.
Here’s the lineup for today:
