We find ourselves in Fort Myers this morning. I managed to arrive on time even though my GPS led me down a dead-end street. Reminded me of that episode of The Office when Michael and Dwight’s GPS leads them into a ditch...

 Here is the lineup against Josh Beckett and Boston's local nine, a team called the Red Stockings:
 
Eric Bruntlett 3B
Jayson Werth CF
Raul Ibanez LF
Ryan Howard 1B
Matt Stairs DH

Pablo Ozuna 2B
Carlos Ruiz C
