Red Sox vs. Twins: Remember the Mayor's Cup?

Please do not remember the Mayor's Cup.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, remember the Mayor's Cup? Well don't. Stop remembering it. Particularly now that it's been renamed. We'll just pretend like nothing's happening, and Red Sox - Twins in spring training is nothing more than Red Sox - Twins in spring training. Really we won't even have to pretend very much. If at all.

Boston Red Sox (9-16)

  1. Daniel Nava, LF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Mike Napoli, 1B
  5. Grady Sizemore, CF
  6. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  7. A.J. Pierzynski, C
  8. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
  9. Jackie Bradley Jr., RF
Starting Pitcher -- John Lackey

Minnesota Twins (8-14)

  1. Brian Dozier, 2B
  2. Joe Mauer, 1B
  3. Oswaldo Arcia, RF
  4. Josh Willingham, DH
  5. Jason Kubel, LF
  6. Trevor Plouffe, 3B
  7. Kurt Suzuki, C
  8. Aaron Hicks, CF
  9. Pedro Florimon, SS

Starting Pitcher -- Kevin Correia

Before anyone starts freaking out about Shane Victorino being absent again, he played in the Triple-A game today. Stole a base and everything. But in the event that he doesn't make Opening Day, that lineup up there is probably what we'll be looking at against right-handed pitching until he's back.

No television broadcast tonight, but WEEI will have the call on the radio.
