While the Reds were busy giving Gary Majewski a very long rope, the other teams in the Central division were busy playing their own fake games. Only there games were even more fake than Cincinnati’s.
- The Pirates got down and dirty by killing a Manatee. Not only politically incorrect and illegal, but it sounds like a great euphemism, too! But Pittsburgh started off the Spring right by beating up on a local community college. This Bud’s for you, Buccos!
- The Brewers played with themselves not once, but twice.
- Lastly, the Cardinals played St. Louis University and managed to squeak out a win even with the absence of Scott Spiezio (hat tip: BubbaFan). I have to say that I’ll miss that Kool-Aid facial hair a little bit this year.
It looks like tomorrow brings a whole slew of Grapefruit and Cactus League action. I know more importance is placed in the games than they deserve, but it’s still awesome to be able to listen to baseball again. And during the Spring, there’s never a shortage of games to stream during the workday.
