Our last spring game, I thought we'd never get to the end of them.

Josh Johnson gets his last tuneup before the season starts. He's has a terrific spring, 16 innings, 8 hits, 1 walk, 21 strikeouts. He's to pitch 5 innings. Santos, Jeffress, Rogers and Stroman are also to pitch.

Best news of the morning:

Thanks Gibby. He also said that Colby will sit occasionally against lefties.

Lineups:

The game is on Sportsnet, at 1:00 Eastern, as soon as my Newcastle United finish rolling over at the feet of Manchester City. Such is life.

Three sleeps until real baseball.
