Every spring, for a few games in March, we're forced to do things the old ways if we want our daily dose of baseball. That's right, it's time to turn off your TV, and turn on your radio. It's not ideal, but it's better than tomorrow, where you'll have to rely solely on the letters and graphics provided by Gameday. Fun!

Today's fun spring training lineup quirk: Nick Punto as the DH. I suppose Daniel Bard as the starting pitcher, too, depending on who you ask.

Go Sox!
