The Red Sox are back on national television today as they take on the Miami Marlins in Fort Myers.

These, of course, are not the Marlins we've come to know and...mock? Pity? All of the above? No, these are the new-look Marlins. These are the Miami Marlins. While we'll be spared any sort of crazy center field light displays for today, it should be clear from the very first at bat that they're not the same penny-pinching bunch we're used to.


Lineup

BOSTON RED SOX MIAMI MARLINS
Nick Punto - 2B Jose Reyes - SS
Kevin Youkilis - 3B Emilio Bonifacio - CF
Adrian Gonzalez - 1B Omar Infante - 2B
David Ortiz - DH Austin Kearns - RF
Ryan Sweeney - RF Aaron Rowand - DH
Cody Ross - LF Chris Coghlan - LF
Kelly Shoppach - C Terry Tiffee - 1B
Darnell McDonald - CF Jeff Dominguez - 3B
Mike Aviles - SS Brett Hayes - C
SP -- Josh Beckett SP -- Ricky Nolasco

Of course, past that first batter, it's not the prettiest bunch in the world. Meanwhile, the Sox have their big three power hitters together for what might be the first time this year.

Josh Beckett will get the start against the club he once championed en route to a World Series title. We'll be hoping for fewer walks than innings pitched. Surely someone has to do that eventually, right?

Go Sox!
