You know it's getting close to Opening Day when spring training games move to "real MLB stadia," as SoSG Sax would say. And you know another SoSG meme has died on the vine when the Dodgers get thumped by Cleveland 6-1 in their 2011 Camelback swan song. Sorry, Scary Spice!
Dodger Stadium opens its gates tonight as it hosts two of the Dodgers' final three spring training games: tonight versus the Angels and Wednesday versus the Mariners. The Angels seem to be facing as many on-field issues as the Dodgers, so tonight's game will clarify exactly nothing. Play meaningless ball!
