In today's Inquirer: Cuban connection, Schmidt, lineups

Mambo No. 5 is playing, so it must be a game day at Bright House Field. Read today's coverage from The Inquirer to prepare yourself...

-- Within today's notebook, we discuss today's lineup against Florida State, Cole Hamels' impressive spring and another honor for Domonic Brown.
