It's interesting to see Bradley in right and Sizemore in center. Typically the center field spot would be given to the better defensive player, and at this point in their respective careers it's hard to imagine that Bradley doesn't have Sizemore beat in that department. More strange than interesting is where Sizemore ends up in the lineup, batting fifth after a spring training spent exclusively in the leadoff spot.

First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. EST with NESN handling the broadcast duties.
