Spring training game thread: Orioles at Phillies

New, comments

The road to the regular season continues with Clay Buchholz’s first start.

The big question before today's spring training game is this: will Maikel Franco hit another home run?

The answer? Oh please oh please oh please oh please oh please oh please oh please.

It may only be spring training, and early spring training at that, but it's still nice to see Franco hit some dingers.

Lineup time!

Today is Clay Buchholz's first start in Phillies pinstripes. He's said he feels like a brand new pitcher, and today will be our first chance to see it. I don't care what anyone says, but I'm pretty excited. He might not be part of the Phillies future, but if he can help them inch closer to a .500 record in 2017, I'm absolutely on board.
