Brewers have their first Cactus League game against the San Francisco Giants today. What’s even better about this first game is that Bob Uecker and Joe Block will be calling the game at 2:00 CT on 620AM. I already have my radio out, see below. You know it’s baseball season when you have your radio out and ready to go. That radio will not leave that windowsill until the end of October. Baseball has begun.
Today’s Brewers lineup:
If anyone is curious as to why both Kottaras and Lucroy are on the roster, considering Wolf pitches to Kottaras, today is a good time to figure out if Wolf and Lucroy can get on the same page with each other (as told to me by a good Brewers source).
Now the Giants lineup:
The Giants have a doubleheader today. They play the Dbacks first, and then they play the Brewers later. The Dbacks beat the Giants 9-6 in their first exhibition game yesterday. Most of their big guys like Pagan, Sandoval, and Huff are playing in the lineup against Dbacks earlier today.
