Your open thread on the eve of exhibition games.

MLB: New York Yankees-Workouts Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Saturday, and happy almost baseball. Just over 24 hours from now, the Yankees will be taking the field down in Tampa to face off with the Blue Jays. The Yankees will reportedly send right-hander Michael King to the mound to start things off. It’s not quite Gerrit Cole on Opening Day vibes, but it’s still something to get excited about.

On the site, we’ll keep getting you ready for the actual season, as Dan previews Thairo Estrada’s 2021. We’ll also see Peter argue Jay Bruce’s case for the last spot on the roster, and Ryan will discuss Domingo Germán’s role on the pitching staff.

Fun Questions

  1. Is Deivi García the easy favorite for the fifth starter job at the beginning of spring training?
  2. Who is the second-best team in the AL East?
