Day 42: Rays @ Pirates
It’s the final day at McKechnie Field this spring and… well… you won’t find many around here who are all that sad. Yes, Bradenton has treated us all well for the past six weeks. But there comes a time every Spring Training when everyone is ready to just go home and get going. That’s been the case for a while now. The truck is packed up with equipment and suitcases and is leaving Bradenton tonight to head to Pittsburgh. And Opening Day is just five days away.
Not much morning news, so let’s just look at lineups for now. And in case you missed it on Saturday, click here for a look at the roster decisions made and those still left.
