Red Sox vs. Twins: Two to go until Opening Day

Real baseball is just around the corner.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The penultimate game of Spring Training is here, and just like the one before it and the one after it, it's Red Sox - Twins.

Boston Red Sox (10-16)

  1. Shane Victorino, RF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. A.J. Pierzynski, C
  4. Mike Napoli, DH
  5. Jonny Gomes, LF
  6. Mike Carp, 1B
  7. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  8. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
  9. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF

Starting Pitcher -- Felix Doubront

Minnesota Twins (8-15)


Starting Pitcher -- Mike Pelfrey

Folks, I know as well as anybody that this is spring and nothing that happens in the games really matters all that much for another few days yet. But that's A.J. Pierzynski batting third for the 2014 Boston Red Sox and, God help me, I can't. I just can't.

First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. EST. Both NESN and the MLB Network will carry today's game. If you want one last look at the team you'll want to get it now--tomorrow's will only have a radio broadcast, and then it's off to Baltimore where something tells me there will indeed be cameras.
