Sunday Bantering: Jays Lineup and Links

MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at Toronto Blue Jays John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

A Blue Jays spring game that’s on TV. Unfortunately I’m spending the day cleaning out my parent’s condo, so I’ll miss it.

There is some sad Jays news:

Arden Zwelling has a story on Jordan Romano’s off-season and how he is going to try to keep his arm from tiring during the season. This is interesting:

It’s an inertial sensor — manufactured by Motus — packed with accelerometers and gyroscopes like the ones your smartphone uses to configure its compass app. All winter, Romano’s been stuffing that sensor into a compression sleeve he’s worn over his right arm whenever he’s thrown a baseball. As he pitches, the sensor measures the rotation of his shoulder, the torque on his elbow, and the angular velocity of his forearm to process a quantification of his workload on a scale from zero to 25.

Today Chase Anderson starts. And Nate Pearson is to pitch as well.

And many of the regulars made the bus trip to Bradenton (one of the nicer Florida towns to host a team during spring training.

Alford plays in left today. I’m hoping he can make the catches out there and maybe make some contact at the plate.
