I don’t know if we’ll do these all spring, but since today is the first game of Spring Training, I thought it might be a fun time to delve back into Game Thread Land. WLW will be broadcasting the game (and XM and MLB.com, I’d imagine), and I’m sure I’m not the only one who is looking forward to hearing Marty Brennaman’s voice. Plus, today is the debut of Marty and Thom in the booth.
Finally, baseball is back.
Discuss the game and anything else you want right here. For starters, what do you think about today’s starting lineup?
Ryan Freel CF
Brandon Phillips 2B
Edwin Encarnacion 3B
Adam Dunn LF
Mark Bellhorn 1B
Josh Hamilton RF
Alex Gonzalez SS
David Ross C
Eric Milton LHP
Try to not to get too worked up. It’s just a spring lineup, after all (of course, that said, it’s actually not that bad a lineup).
