Our large adult son, Rhys Hoskins, will be playing today, using the DH spot to ease his way back into the lineup. Probably the wise thing to do since he’ll need time to make sure his surgically repaired elbow is completely and fully healed.
It’s also the spring debut for Matt Moore. Moore is one of the more intriguing players in camp this spring. Coming back from Japan, he had good numbers, but the players there - as good as they are - are not major league baseball players. His past bouts of wildness hopefully behind him, Moore will be looking to secure one of the final two rotation spots this spring.
The game is on TV today, 1:00 on NBCS+. Set your timers and let’s get chatting.
