3/12/18: Open Game Thread

Or: Only 17 more days

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Hello, it’s Monday! There are only 17 days until the regular season starts, so let’s not to lose steam as we inch closer and closer. The glamour of signing Ichiro has worn off a little, and the novelty of Spring Training has been reduced to approximately 11 separate injury watches.

And for every fun player that is back in the lineup, three fun players must be removed. Conservation of fun is very real. Just take a gander at this lineup.

Dee and Kyle are back after sitting yesterday! Unfortunately, it is at the expense of Cano and Cruz. Fortunately, this game is televised and a red-hot Marco Gonzales is on the hill for the M’s.

Can Dan Vogelbach and Marco Gonzales continue their torrid spring? Will Dee Gordon show off a bizarrely amazing amount of range for his ~5th ever game in center field? Will Gordon Beckham and Andrew Romine make serious pushes for the utility role? Tune tonight to Root Sports NW at 6:40 PM PST for another exciting episode of: Please Oh Please Can Spring Training Be Over Already?
