Just two weeks from today, and it’ll be Opening Day for the 2018 Arizona Diamondbacks. Doesn’t time fly? So far, it has been steady as she goes for the D-backs: the only significant injury issue of concern, which we didn’t know about coming in, is probably Groinke’s grein. Hopefully, that turns out to be just a little thing. :) However, on that front...

Right now, Ray’s spring ERA is still an ugly 9.00, but that’s almost entirely the result of his one ugly start against Los Angeles: spring training is very good at magnifying things like that, because you’re only talking about a small number of innings. Ray’s last outing, against the Royals in Surprise, was much better: 3.2 innings of one-run ball, with six strikeouts. Here’s to more of that today.

This one is available on the radio through Not sure if it’ll be our broadcasters or the Cubs’ ones.
