Spring Begins Tomorrow
By Ian Hunter
In just over 24 hours, the Blue Jays kick off their Spring Training schedule against the Detroit Tigers at Dunedin Stadium. Unfortunately, we will be relegated to Twitter updates and constantly refreshing the boxscore to find out how the Blue Jays will fare against the Tigers.
Luckily, Friday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies will be broadcasted on MLB.com, but the only way to listen live is through MLB's GameDay Audio (which I'm told will be available later today).
For just $19.95, I highly suggest subscribing - the GameDay subscription allows you to listen to this Friday's game against the Phillies, as well as a few addition weekday games and all the weekend broadcasts.
Plus, you also get to listen to all the regular season games online - which is a bonus because keep in mind The Fan is not allowed to transmit the games on their website.
Speaking of Friday, thanks to the insight from Jordan Bastian's latest blog post, we discovered that Marc Rzepczynski will start the game against the Phillies.
Brett Cecil will also get some work, followed by Kyle Drabek in his highly anticipated debut as a Blue Jay. The Phillies will counter on the mound with Cole Hamels, J.C. Ramirez, Ryan Vogelsong and Antonio Bastardo.
