    Houston Astros (0-0) vs. Atlanta Braves (0-1)
    Friday, February 28, 5:05 PM CT, Champion Stadium

    Lucas Harrell (HOU) Vs. Brandon Reachy (ATL)

    Both right-handers. Probable lineups and the game preview are not available at the moment. The wait is almost over. Not going to be televised, but is going to broadcast via radio station KBME 790.

    Ladies and gentleman, baseball is finally back!

    Nothing like playing the Braves in Spring Training to remind me that the Astros are playing ALball now.

    He was designated for assignment, but cleared waivers and got a camp invite.

    I really think/hope Guzman can give us some solid ABs if they don't want to bring up Singleton yet.

    I had to move to Orlando last October, pretty close to Kissimmee as well. Been waiting for this along w/ Rockets vs Magic on the 5th. It's funny to watch some Magic fans faces when I walk in a bar sporting Rockets gear. Gonna be a fun month

    I said it before, but Luhnow had to cut Wallace in order to make him a castoff, and thereby rekindle the "sparkle", as we know Luhnow loves castoffs/reclamation projects/bargains more than anything else...;)

    Actually since this isn't the regular season, I am very surprised. Figured he would hit a bomb tonight and continue to force his way into the opening day lineup, lol
