A guy just spent about 30 minutes touching up the Athletics logo in the grass behind home plate, painting the green-and-gold trim around it, because it had started to fade in the desert sun. Never mind the fact the A’s have left for Tokyo and their opener with Boston. Never mind the fact that the Dodgers are playing the Angels today. Never mind the fact this is the last game in this ballpark this spring. That guy’s job was to paint that logo, and he was going to paint that logo, by golly. … Beautiful day in PHX. Kent is going to get at-bats in a simulated game on a back field beyond right field DURING THE REGULAR GAME. He’ll hit off Broxton and Beimel, who will pitch back there to get their innings in. They won’t start until about the fifth inning of this game.
