We are only games two from bidding adieu to the park of JetBlue. The terrible sting of this departure thing will be muted by the real games the end of spring brings.
Wait, what the hell am I doing?
Today we face the Twins, tomorrow the Nationals, and then on Tuesday the Nats in a real MLB park. All this, of course, leading up to Wednesday's big season opener against the Tigers. It's just that close.
For this last penultimate Florida warmup, we're being given quite the treat: the full lineup, on TV, in what could well be opening day order:
|BOSTON RED SOX||MINNESOTA TWINS|
|Jacoby Ellsbury - CF||Denard Span - CF|
|Dustin Pedroia - 2B||Jamey Carroll - SS|
|Adrian Gonzalez - 1B||Chris Parmelee - DH|
|Kevin Youkilis - 3B||Ryan Doumit - C|
|David Ortiz - DH||Danny Valencia - 3B|
|Cody Ross - LF||Sean Burroughs - 1B|
|Jarrod Saltalamacchia - C||Luke Hughes - 2B|
|Ryan Sweeney - RF||Trevor Plouffe - RF|
|Mike Aviles - SS||Ben Revere - LF|
