Red Sox - Phillies would be a nice match up to hear about come October. But for now we'll have to settle for March.
For some reason (hint: it's the travel) Terry Francona has decided to use his best players in these last couple of games instead of in the first televised game of the year. So while tomorrow's showdown vs. the Yankees will have only one highlight player in Clay Buchholz (maybe Jed Lowrie), today, we get just about the whole team.
1. Marco Scutaro, SS
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Carl Crawford, LF
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. David Ortiz, DH
6. J.D. Drew, RF
7. Mike Cameron, CF
8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
9. Lars Anderson, DH
SP: Stolmy Pimentel
