Interesting to see Ray going up against a divisional rival, in what I’m assuming is his final start before the regular season. It’s likely because we don’t see San Francisco until quite some way into the schedule - our first game against the Giants is not until May 17. Give how many at-bats they’ll have between now and then, it’s not as if seeing Ray for two or three this afternoon will make any difference. Jarrod Dyson starts in center. He has only managed five at-bats thus far in spring; Adam Jones hasn’t many more (9), so it’ll be interesting to see how the team handles playing time, with only three more pre-season games to go. Will there be enough PAs to get both men fully ready?
I was hoping to get to this one, and hang out with snakecharmer and asteroid on the lawn at Scottsdale. Unfortunately, Mrs. SnakePit needed the car for work: as is, I’ll be putting my life on the line and taking the bus and light-rail over to Tempe later on. So the recap on this one will potentially be delayed, though I hope to get most of it knocked out before I begin my perilous journey by walking to a bus-stop! If you don’t hear from me again, you can get DNA off my tooth-brush. :)
