BASEBALL IS HERE!
Okay, I’m exaggerating. But only a little bit! It might only be spring training, but the Phillies are taking on a real major league team today.
The Phillies are facing the Yankees today in what I consider to be their first real official spring training game. You can watch it on MLB Network at 1pm, so I invite you to leave your jobs and stop whatever it is you should be doing to view it.
We have a lineup!

I’m excited about this game, about spring training, and about this season. Be excited with me, won’t you?
So for the first time this season... discuss the game in the comments below.
