Just in time for it to get stinkin' hot in Phoenix.

April 8: Avg. high -- 83F
May 1: 90F
May 31: 100F

So, a lot of night games?

I imagine they'd also schedule first pitch based on the "home" team's time zone, so they could get some East Coast teams' games in before the hottest part of the day.

Still no baseball yet.

In the meantime, what if the Browns moved to Los Angeles in 1942?

With Spring Training about to end, Opening Night on Thursday will have the Yankees v Nationals, and Giants v Dodgers. And yes it's gonna be a 60 game season.

Really. I wish the announcers didn't feel the need to fill every single freakin' second of air time with chatter. Call the balls and strikes and the plays, maybe a little about the players but shut up and let me watch the game, FFS!

The mets have cardboard cut outs of.the fans in the stands, they charged 86 dollars per and donated the money to charity.

3 mets bought in and have pictures of their dogs sitting together in the right field stands. Matz just gave up a home run, hit conforto's dog right in the snout.
