It's so nice to see baseball games being played again. This offseason was torturous.

Holy crap, those relievers are battling for probably two spots, if not one.

A REALLY fast outfield!

I finally brought a radio into work so I can actually start listening to the day games. I can't wait to hear about this outfield making some great catches.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

2/3 of the starting OF when the Twins get good (I hope).

It's supposedly raining there. It's windy as heck here in Ft Myers, with a tornado watch til 3. Tee time at 3:17. so everything's up in the air, literally.

The game started pretty much on time. The teams didn't get batting practice.

Hicks-Mastroianni-Mauer went 1-2-3 in the top of the 1st.

This is the point in which we need to say that he numbers that Pelfrey puts up today/this spring don't matter. It's only important that he is back on the mound again.

And the Jays go 1-2-3...4-5-6...7.

11 strikes and 1 ball for Pelfrey though.

I think that the only thing that really matters for Pelfrey in spring training is that we see improvement throughout. He was up and down in this outing but we saw some good things in there as well.

I was worried there might be something going on. He was only at 15 pitches. Maybe someone was listening and could mitigate my concerns...

Gottcha, I guess I just assumed that you were listening and that's how you knew he was out.

It sounds like they just had him on a hard pitch count and he'd come out as soon as he reached it.

Each of today's 3 outfielders has gotten a hit. That makes me happy.

That is good news. Please note that some of us are relying on those of us who have radio access to provide such comforting details.

Sounds like all the Outfielders have had good games. Mastroianni made a real nice jumping catch against the wall earlier in the game.

Oh man, I go to a meeting for a half an hour and the Twins score two runs and no update on thread.

I don't think that is a correct pitch count, considering he faced 10 Batters and struck 2 out.
