Happy March to everybody!
This means that we will have real life regular season baseball being played in this calendar month! The M’s still have a lot of practice games left (24 to be exact!) and what do you know, one of them happens to be today!
Today the M’s will be making the 38.6 mile pilgrimage from Peoria to take on the Chicago Cubs in beautiful and scenic Mesa, Arizona at Sloan Park.
Today the M’s will be trotting out a pseudo-major league roster with Kendall Graveman taking the mound for the first two-ish innings. As has been customary for this year’s ST rosters, this lineup should have quite a few young regular season mainstays to begin the game like Kyle Lewis, Mallex Smith and JP Crawford among others. Patrick Wisdom gets the start today and should be looking to try to catch up to Tim Lopes in the UTIL battle this Spring.
The Cubs are trotting out an admittedly much more major league lineup, with guys like Jon Lester, Javier Baez and Kris Bryant (oh yeah, also former Mariners minor leaguer Ian Miller).
As for how you can watch this beautiful spectacle of life commonly referred to as Seattle Mariners Baseball,
