The WBC is over and spring training’s one off day has passed. Let’s rock.

Guess who’s back?

We’re finally in the home stretch now, kids. The regular season — real Major League Baseball games — are almost within our grasp. Until then, we continue to fumble on in this thing called life, laid low by virulent illnesses borne of the freezing early spring weather. Maybe that’s just me, but I doubt it.

Anyhow here’s today’s lineup against the Pirates (1:05 p.m., WEEI). Xander’s back!

  1. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  2. Andrew Benintendi, LF
  3. Mookie Betts, RF
  4. Hanley Ramirez, DH
  5. Mitch Moreland, 1B
  6. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  7. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  8. Pablo Sandoval, 3B
  9. Blake Swihart, C

SP: Eduardo Rodriguez

Drew Hutchison starts for Pittsburgh. I’m still waiting for this DayQuil to kick in, so discuss whatever else you’d like in the comments.
