Thoughts on spring training thus far?

Kikuchi is going to benefit from the pitch clock.  Not enough time to get into his head.  I'm not expecting all-star production but if he can get into the 4.5 ERA with his strikeout numbers that's going to be pretty elite rotation.

Arn

The pitch clock is class. Really puts the game into a nice rhythm. The game I watched yesterday last 2 hours 2 minutes as well. That's perfect.

I hadn't heard this bit. I presume the pitcher is calling the pitch when he presses his glove? And only having 20 seconds to do so.

Yeah it's a small device the pitcher is wearing (I've seen glove side wrist, or belt) and the catcher has the partner device.

Ohtani strikes out Mike Trout in a 3-2 game for the final out at the World Baseball Classic.

Jeez. Are we throwing a crap-ton of money at this guy the coming offseason? The country would go ballistic.

Ohtani and Vlad on the same team would be insane.

Kikuchi with another strong game yesterday is encouraging.

Arn

3-0 up top of the first.  Also ally guaranteeing a World Series appearance based on that.

Jays made quick work of STL yesterday!!!!!

I guess if both teams just keep hitting the ball, then games do take longer.

Arn

Was a fantastically entertaining game. Lots of first game sloppiness, but some good signs. Springer going 5/6 and taking a fantastic catch. Very aggressive base running. Some decent defensive decision making (while still conceding 9 runs...)

What the f with Bassitt today?  I thought this guy was a stud.
