It’s officially spring! A few games that count have been played (albeit in Japan) and opening day is just a week away. We’re all obsessing over those last few roster spots and it sounds petty, but this team has had a knack over the years for cutting the wrong guy loose – especially relievers. The last few spots on the 25-man are up for grabs, but really, they’ll be in flux all year due to injuries and bullpen rotation. The important thing is that next Thursday afternoon in Washington at 1:05pm, the umpire will holler, “Play ball!” and Brandon Nimmo will step into the batter’s box to face Max Scherzer.
