Good morning and welcome to Saturday Spring Training baseball time. This one is on TV yet again! Huzzah! The weather is looking pretty grand in the greater Northwest, so maybe pop the headphones on or crank up the radio and do some yard work you’ve been neglecting? I don’t know, I’m not the boss of you. Do what you want!
Lots of fun Mariners players in the mix today. Mitch Haniger is back after a precautionary scratch last night due to the iffy weather, which I am extremely okay with. We’ve got Calboy in the cleanup spot, Taylor Trammell in center field, and Julio Rodríguez is holding it down at DH. I sense dingers and doubles in the forecast.
