    Maybe they are just trying to save him the embarassment of having to hit until the season starts or maybe he can hit now and they don't want the scouts to see his new swing. Probably the former but could be the latter.

    Wow, Hatteberg, Womack and Aurilia in at the same time.

    Looks like the Rays are playing the Cincinnati Scrappy Vets today.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Harang has a bit of the flu....so it he doesn't pitch as well today, don't be alarmed.

    Hopefully he'll do just fine.

    Lugo leading off for the Rays- top of 1.

    Julio falls behind 1-2 after waving at one. (With the bat.) Liner to right in front of Kearns, base hit.

    Crawford, who's wearing #99 after forgetting his real jersey. What a Pollack. 1-2 count for him as well. Foul. Grounder to third BACKHANDED BY AURILIA AND THEY GET THE FORCE! Luckily it was hit within a couple of steps of Rich. Announcers leave drool puddles on Aurilia's shoes. "He's an absolutely invaluable cog," sayeth Martin.

    Cantu. No one said you couldn't, buddy. 0-2 count; breaking ball misses by a blip. Crawford goes, fly ball to Kearns near RCF. Two outs.

    Marion, Ohio's Aubrey Huff. He's one day older than me. He's a lot richer than me, too. So is Aurilia. ROCKET INTO RIGHT, KEARNS GOT IT! Hit right at him. Three outs.

    0-0 after 0.5.

    He said that he doesn't care about what his teammates do, he only cares about himself. Also said that he is not going to play outfield, shortstop or anywhere else but second base.

    Are you crapping me? He actually said that to a member of the media? Without significant context? I would say you were kidding, but you might not be.

    I can only hope Narron's reluctance to name an opening day lineup is that he is waiting for Womack to be gone before he has to tell him to grab some bench.

    Bottom of 1.

    Womack shows bunt, then realizes the ball would travel the same distance if he swung and takes a ball. Not off the helmet, unfortunately. Strike. Foul. Ball's inside. But not enough inside. 2-2. Foul again. He makes an out, didn't hear how.

    Lopez falls behind 0-2, watching 'em both. Grounder to short, funny hop bounces off Lugo's arm for an error.

    Junior. Strike. Someone (Womack?) told Junior before the game that the only things pretty about him are his swing and his family. Heh. High and away, ball one. Foul. Struck him out swinging.

    Dunn. Three and zero on A.D. Taken, ball four.

    Kearns with two on and two out. Groundout.

    0-0 after 1.

    Marty speculates that Quinton McCracken may need to be DLed because of his foot problems. If Tony Womack cared about anyone but himself, he'd led Quinto his Blue Star ointment.

    I was just watching a bit of the Pirates/Redsox game, and one benefit of H-Burg or Richie at 1B is the game will last approximately a half-hour less. I forgot how long it took Casey to adjust his jock in between pitches.
    Tom Shearn... who knew?

    No, he actually said that to Scott Springer, newsman from WLW.

    Maybe Casey uses Icy-Hot in the groin region too.
