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...

-- Mike Schmidt loves these Phillies, but he wants Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino to not look for the long ball and instead get on base more. Hard to find fault with that logic.

-- Much has been made about the bond between Danys Baez and Jose Contreras, but as Bob Brookover finds, Baez was more crucial to Contreras' success than you'd imagine.

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