Gomes Makes Squad For Reds Spring Training Opener

Ahhhhh... we'll be hearing the crack of the bat in just over an hour.  The Reds and Rays Grapefruit League opener begins at 10:05 PTown Time.  Time to re-up my Game Day Audio subscription (only $14.95 for the season) and get back in the baseball groove.  For some live action, there's always the Gaucho Varsity Scrimmage at 3:30 this afternoon vs. Montgomery on Bob Leslie Field at Casa Grande High School. Weather permitting...

PTown's Gomes had a hit in yesterday's intersquad game and will accompany the starters to the Rays spiffy new Spring Training complex in Port Charlotte.  Chris Dickerson gets the start in LF.  Apparently it's his job to lose. Dusty Baker has also said if he were to decide at this point, it would likely be a Dickerson/Hairston platoon in right field. Dusty has also hinted we might see Jonny at 1B during Spring Training.  Hmmm. Grab that ring Jonny. Wherever they dangle it.

Gotta run... peanuts to roast, hot dogs to steam, at bat music to cue and scorebook to find...  too early for a beer?  GAME ON!

Give PTownFan a shout. It will make her day to know there is someone out there ;-) Don't worry. She doesn't always talk about herself in the third person like The Rickey.
