Today's lineup

Good morning from Bright House Field, apparently named for the 9:30 A.M. sun pointed directly at my eyes in the press box. Here is the lineup for today's 1:05 game against Team Canada:

Today's lineup

Good morning from Bright House Field, apparently named for the 9:30 A.M. sun pointed directly at my eyes in the press box. Here is the lineup for today's 1:05 game against Team Canada:

CF Eric Bruntlett

2B Miguel Cairo

LF Raul Ibanez

1B Ryan Howard

RF Geoff Jenkins

3B Greg Dobbs

DH John Mayberry

SS Jason Donald

C Ronny Paulino

Pitchers: some guy named Cole Hamels, Drew Carpenter, Justin Lehr and Scott Eyre.

More from the game later.  Team Canada's roster includes Justin Morneau, Jason Bay and the Phillies' Matt Stairs.  Also, a man who gives Dooley Womack and Biff Pocoroba a run for the greatest baseball name title, Stubby Clapp.

Check in during the game, I'll post a Hamels update after he comes out.  He's slated to throw 40-50 pitches, or about and inning or two.
