I bring you good news on this Saturday — we only have three and a half more weeks until Opening Day! It feels like spring training just started, but real baseball should be just around the corner.
Cooper will start our day off by explaining why interim manager Carlos Mendoza is a future MLB skipper in the making, and Dan will preview bullpen weapon Chad Green’s 2021 season. Later on, Matt will do our daily history post, and Joe will present our first edition of the annual Making the Team Meter.
Josh will be recapping this afternoon’s Yankees/Pirates game in Bradenton, but there’s a chance that it could be washed out. Gerrit Cole was originally supposed to start the game, but they decided to have him throw batting practice at the Yankees’ complex. Instead, Jameson Taillon will get the start in the game if it goes off without a hitch. (Here’s the travel roster if you’re interested.)

- Calzones: Yay or nay?
