Home Opener GameThread

I’m putting up the GameThread early

I’m curious to see how the new dimensions play out. I think we’ll see more home runs.

Here is our Home Opener lineup:

Today's Lineups

Akil Baddoo - LF George Springer - RF
Riley Greene - CF Bo Bichette - SS
Matt Vierling - RF Vladimir Guerrero - 1B
Kerry Carpenter - DH Daulton Varsho - LF
Javier Baez - SS Matt Chapman - 3B
Spencer Torkelson - 1B Brandon Belt - DH
Nick Maton - 3B Alejandro Kirk - C
Jonathan Schoop - 2B Cavan Biggio - 2B
Jake Rogers - C Kevin Kiermaier - CF
Matt Manning - RHP Alek Manoah - RHP

Pretty much our normal group against RHP.

If you are wondering, the dome won’t be open. It takes a bit to get it going every spring. We complain, but it is an old building (well, old for stuff in North America). It only works at when it is warm, and it needs a few days of testing and working at it to get going.


Will we see a home run tonight?

Send me a note if you want to volunteer to hit cleanup for us and do the GameThreads.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible.” 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 not offering him money to promote a sports betting site. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here.
