The GBT - The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe.

RAYS 3, Yankees 0 (boxscore)

THE GOOD: 4 days until Opening Day.

THE BAD: 4 days until Opening Day.

THE TELLING: Erasmo Ramirez is “expected” to be in the rotation to start the seasonAndrew Friedman is apparently getting the band back together in L.A., trading for Elliot JohnsonDrew Smyly threw a batting practice session yesterday. Alex Colome is expected to throw BP tomorrow. Jake McGee and Matt Moore are scheduled to throw bullpen sessions tomorrow…Chris Archer will make his final Spring start today. I’m sure it will be an easy day. But this means he will make his Opening Day start on 3 days rest. Still seems odd.

    In her comment the woman says her father was a season ticket holder for 17 years, yet the guy who gets injured is wearing Yankees gear. Sounds like she's just fishing for trouble.
