Open Thread: February 25th Camp Notes

Spring Training Game Thread: A Prospect-Laden Lineup
Assorted Baseball Thoughts

The Yankees suffered their first spring loss today, though they showed some #FightingSpirit by rallying to tie the game in the top of the ninth. The Phillies then came back to win in the bottom half. Womp womp. Gleyber Torres had a double to left, a double to right, and he scored from second on a wild pitch. That was fun. Chris Carter, Clint Frazier, and Miguel Andujar each had a single.

Adam Warren started and threw two perfect innings. It was a very ho hum, Adam Warren-like outing. Dietrich Enns and Daniel Camarena threw two innings each and combined to allow five runs. Ben Heller struck out the side in an impressive inning, though it was against a bunch of minor league kids. Jonathan Holder fanned two in his perfect inning. Here’s the box score, here are the video highlights, and here are the rest of the day’s notes from Tampa:

This is the open thread for the rest of the day. This afternoon’s game will be replayed on MLB Network at 11pm ET, if you’re interested. (MLB Network will be showing games the rest of the day, though all will be on tape delay.) All the local hockey and basketball teams are in action, and there’s more college basketball on the schedule than any one person could possible watch. Talk about those games or anything else right here, as long as it’s not religion or politics.

Good Cause: The Trenton Thunder have teamed up with Vs. Cancer to help fight pediatric cancer. Doug Hall has all the details. The Thunder will hold a fundraising event at the ballpark on August 22nd, though you could make a donation right now at their Vs. Cancer page. They’re hoping to raise $20,000 this year. If you’ve got a few extra bucks burning a hole in your pocket, here’s a good cause.
