Marco Gonzales vs. Matt Boyd...maybe

MLB: Spring Training-Detroit Tigers at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a showdown of local pitchers today as Gonzaga grad/Seattle resident Marco Gonzales squares off against Eastside Catholic/OSU grad Matt Boyd. Between that and Manny Acta and Ichiro as substitute teachers, should be a great meetup...if it happens.

Here’s the lineup, if the game is played:

The game will be available in all the usual ways, if it happens. I’ll post updates here as we hear more.

UPDATE, 4:15 PT: The game is now officially delayed, although with no projected start time. But...things don’t look great.

This is what Many Acta, when he managed Cleveland, called “Dracula weather,” and he got to trot out the term again today, so at least he got to do a little bit of the manager’s job today.

UPDATE, 4:52 PT: Booo no baseball today. Doubleheader tomorrow:

If you’re still craving Mariner-adjacent baseball, here’s the minors schedule for today:

The Double-A Arkansas Travelers and Clinton LumberKings are playing right now. Listen to the Travs or watch on MiLB.tv. Listen to the Clinton game here.

Triple-A Tacoma at El Paso (Christian Bergman pitching), 6:05 PM. Listen or watch on MiLB.tv.

The Modesto Nuts play at 7:05 PM. Listen here.

Also, for those of you into scoreboard watching, the Athletics are currently up on the Yankees (!), the Rangers and Astros are about to get underway, and the Twins play the Angels at seven. Please Twins, get your collective act together.
