Phillies vs. Reds (Game 1): Line-up

It's 9:31 a.m., and its chilly in Clearwater. The wind is blowing hard from left field to right field. Could be a low-scoring one today. The Phillies take on the Reds less than 24 hours after their scheduled exhibition against Florida State was rained out.

Jamie Moyer will start the game, followed by Travis Blackley, Carlos Carrasco, Clay Condrey and Ryan Madson. I'm real interested to see Blackley, Carrasco and Madson pitch. Blackley is a rule-5 guy the Phils picked up from San Francisco in the offseason. He's a lefty, and he's supposedly in the thick of the competition for the No. 5 spot in the rotation. Carrasco is one of the team's top pitching prospects, and Madson will be making his first appearance since July of last year
