I’m away for a month, a holiday in Australia and New Zealand (well, we were going on holiday.....apparently, they are getting a little bit of snow in Vancouver and our flight there is cancelled. Insert joke about people from Vancouver here) (actually, they are getting a huge dump of snow, and we have no idea when/if we are leaving).

I’ll likely be able to watch the start of the game unless they find a way to get us to the land where everything can kill you between now and then.

The first Jays spring game has us visiting the Pirates in Bradenton. The game is going to be Sportsnet as well as

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible,” but these days, it’s also, “please debate about baseball and not the coronavirus or vaccines.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead, he would love to see an email that isn’t offering him money to promote a sports betting site. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here.
