We get to watch Vlad Guerrero Jr and Bo Bichette

We can watch the Futures game over at It starts at 4:00 Eastern. I don’t know why Sportsnet doesn’t put it on one of their 42 channels.

Bo Bichette isn’t starting, but I’d expect he’ll be in the game. Vlad Guerrero Jr is starting at DH for the World team.
