It's Marcus Stroman's first start back from the disabled list. Let's hope it's a good one. I saw Marcus pitch against the Angels last year, and he pitched a complete game and got the win.
From my experience at the ballpark last night, this Christmas in June promotion is really quite spectacular. There are wreaths and garland everywhere, carolers singing songs, and Christmas music was blasting over the PA system. The FOX Sports announcer was dressed up like a snowman. Super fun.
I have a sign for Curtis Granderson and a sign for Marcus Stroman tonight, so keep your eyes out for them.
