Hi. Here’s a solemn moment of silence for Tony Zych.
Now on with tonight’s action. Here come the managers to home plate with the...
As has been common this spring, top 2/3rds is a real bona fide big league team for the Mariners. My Man Mitch is back! Oh, and there’s three other guys in there, too.
For the Reds, we get to watch Joey Votto, Canada’s meanest (and funniest) export of all time, and former Mariners farmhand Patrick Kivlehan. Knock-off-TBS-comedy-star Sal Romano starts for the Red Legs. The first pitch tonight will be thrown by Goodyear, Arizona’s most famous product, Dry Heat. And it’s in there for a strike. Well done.

More roster moves today, Andrew Moore, Nick Rumbelow and Johendi Jiminian sent to the minor league side.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 10, 2018
Felix to throw from 120 ft. today. Getting closer to throwing bullpens. Servais says there is plenty of time for him to get ready. Optimism that Ramirez could be ready by the time a 5th starter is needed as well.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 10, 2018
Out to sing the national anthem is Mick Jagger, who really loves these Mariners-Reds spring training matchups and always requests to sing the national anthem at one of them.
Wow, he really nailed those high notes!
