The Cactus League is upon us. Been having internet issues, so I hadn’t posted the lineup until now and I’m guessing you already have it. Pierre, Ausmus, Ethier, Loney, Blake, Kemp, DeWitt, Young and Abreu.
Birthday wishes go out to the Cubs’ Ron Santo and Dodger assistant trainer Rick Lembo. And get well wishes to Rick Monday, who is sick with the flu and that’s why you’re hearing Charley Steiner with Josh Suchon right now on KABC, if you’re listening. Ken Levine will pop in the booth for three innings as well and hopefully Mo will be back by Saturday’s game.
Other than that, just the usual day of Manny rumors and excitement. ESPN is here at Mesa to cover the story in 24-hour fashion but I don’t really have any update to offer. Keeping my fingers crossed, as are all of you.
