It’s Saturday day baseball. As the game was meant to be played

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Philadelphia Phillies Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

For some reason, the powers that be decided not to televise the Phillies game, against the league’s marquee franchise, last night. I don’t think we’ll ever understand the rules of televising spring training games, so the fact that two major markets were excluded from watching their team’s night game to end the week is asinine and something that should be addressed.

Today, though, we get to see the team in action as they take on the Blue Jays for the 500th time this spring. On the bump for the team is Matt Moore who continues sewing up a rotation spot in Philadelphia.

Moore will get a chance to prove himself as he faces a Blue Jays lineup that has several of their starters in the game, at least to begin.

Sit back, relax, and take in the game on this gloriously beautiful game.
