Diamondbacks Spring Training: Gameday Thread, #27, vs. White Sox

Ahhhhh, spring training. - @BertDbacks via Twitter

So, the first game of the post-John McDonald era takes place today at Camelback. Former A's Brandon McCarthy and Brad Ziegler take the mound. Espect "Johnny Mac would have got that" comments on any infield hits...

Diamondbacks line-up

  1. Willie Bloomquist, DH
  2. Gerardo Parra, CF
  3. Martin Prado, 3B
  4. Jason Kubel, LF
  5. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  6. A.J. Pollock. RF
  7. Rod Barajas, C
  8. John McDonald Josh Wilson, 2B
  9. Cliff Pennington, SS
    + pitchers Brandon McCarthy, Brad Ziegler, Tony Sipp

Obviously, a late change to the line-up - to the point that no-one has actually seen fit to Tweet the revised one yet. Adam Eaton held out of the line-up again, which is interesting. Probably no real reason for concern, he did come off the bench to hit yesterday, and they also said they were going to do some work with him on the back-fields, with regard to his base-running. Hopefully that really is all there is.

The other big news of the day is, Bob Nightengale reports that "There are at least 90 baseball players, including Braun, whose names appear in the infamous Biogenesis Clinic records, according to one baseball official with direct knowledge of the investigation." This could get very ugly, very quickly, as soon as that list of names leaks, and I doubt any team will escape the repercussions entirely. Brace yourselves...
