Spring Training Gameday Thread #31: 3/30, Diamondbacks @ Athletics

Hey! Look at that! An actual starting pitcher! And there I was, beginning to thing Anthony Banda had won a spot in our rotation...

Early starts today and tomorrow, as we finish up the Cactus League schedule - I guess this counts as "Getaway Day" or something! Since we're facing a team we're not going to see at all in the regular season - we face the AL East in interleague play - we get to see an actual starter. I almost wrote "not going to see at all" but I guess there is the possibility of a 2016 World Series which pits the Oakland A's against the Arizona Diamondbacks. That'd be nice. This also means a DH spot, so Beef gets to enjoy that this afternoon. Looks like a full-strength bullpen, with Burgos and Bracho two of the candidates for the remaining spot. Or maybe two, if Josh Collmenter is "hurt".
