Sure, we finally have a game against a MLB team, but with Ryan Church being the only opening day starter to make the trip, does it really count?
Mike Pelfrey will also be at the game, as he is the slated to get the start. It should be interesting to watch Pelfrey this spring training because there has to be the thought in the back of his head that he can make the team with a strong performance and a little help from an injured Orlando Hernandez. Today's first game won't hold much water as to how Pelfrey will look when April rolls around, but as we progress through ST, we can start to see what he's really made of.
