It’s a shame that today’s game, albeit an exhibition against a NCAA D-I powderpuff, isn’t broadcast on radio or TV because it’s right in our sweet spot, a lineup of minor-leaguers and non-roster invitees:

Lombardozzi, 2B Paul, LF Moore, 1B Harper, RF Carroll, DH
Rendon, 3B Brown, CF Blanco, SS Leon, C

LHP Matt Purke is slated to start, followed by Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Rafael Martin, Waldis Joaquin, Jeff Fulchino and Atahualpa Severino (not necessarily in that order).

Bill “The Rocket” Ladson is reporting that Justin Bloxom, Destin Hood, Jeff Kobernus, Michael Taylor, and Zach Walters will come off the bench.

For the real geeks diehards, check to see if MLB will be warming up its interns with a GameDay broadcast at noon. As mentioned in the comments, @NatsJack will be tweeting from the game, which should include some pics.

  1. If they put it on the MLB page, I could ask for no more. I am disappointed that even Georgetown radio isn’t broadcasting it for novelty’s sake. Now that spring training games are starting, the whole process can go as slowly as possible, as far as I am concerned. I love this time of year, and am not itching to lose March so that “real” games can begin.

    It’s fun to care for a day or two how Austin Bibens-Dirkx is pitching.


  2. Purke looked good threw 91-93. Not bad for early spring. Hopefully, offsets the loss of Solis.
