The latest from Spring Training…
- Biggest story of the day: Mariano Rivera is finally in camp after staying home with his sick family for a few days.
- Regarding how Russell Martin looks physically, Joe Girardi said “he hasn’t shown anything to suggest he won’t be able to play every day.” Martin’s still coming back from that offseason knee surgery, and the only think he isn’t doing right now is blocking balls in the dirt. (Erik Boland & Chad Jennings)
- Freddy Garcia, Bartolo Colon, and Sergio Mitre all threw bullpen sessions. Click the Jennings’ link for the full list of pitchers that threw today. (Marc Carig)
Slow day, but I always say no news is good news. Anyways, here’s your open thread. The Isles and Rangers are both playing, but talk about whatever. Have at it.
Quick site note: I’ve updated the Spring Training television schedule post now that the MLB Network has announced the games they’re broadcasting. The new dates added are March 12th (@ Nationals), 20th (@ Phillies), 21st (@ Rays), and 23rd (vs. Blue Jays). The first three will be on tape delay though.
