Sunday sports open thread: Pirates @ Orioles, March Madness day 4

New, 104 comments

It's Pirates @ Orioles in Grapefruit League action on Sunday, plus March Madness day 4. Are you hanging in there in your bracket pool?

At least there's a real, Opening Day-looking lineup (probably minus Jemile Weeks) going on Sunday, but as you've probably noticed, it's beyond me to get excited about spring training. Guys need time to get ready for the regular season, fine. Nothing counts and it's just hoping nobody gets hurt. So nobody get hurt.

By the way, Kevin Gausman looks cool with glasses. Represent the four-eyes of the world well.

Some time during this game will mark exactly eight days until first pitch for Opening Day. It's not that long of a time, and yet it feels like forever.
