This is it, folks. This is the first game of the year that really matters: the Cactus League Championship game. The Mariners are facing off against the Royals for the Golden Saguaro, the Platinum Prickly Pear, the Silver Cactoid, and all of the marbles. They will start their regulars, minus Michael Saunders and Jesus Montero, while the other team leaves only two everyday starters (Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas) behind.

Are you ready to watch an epic battle between the Royals and the Mariners? Are you ready to bear witness to the duel of destiny between Jeremy Bonderman and Sugar Ray Marimon? Are you ready to see our team win the Cactus League Championship?

I sure am. Let's go Mariners!
