    Twins feed will be the broadcast. Only Wednesday's(Red Sox) and Friday night's game against the Bucs will be broadcast until the weekend.

    Castro sure is playing alot for someone with no chance of making the team.

    Has there been a game yet this spring where the CFer hasn't led off?

    I stilll fear a bunch of geezers(Castro, Stanton, Hatty, etc) are going to be around and playing a lot.

    I hope I am wrong.

    Even Jay Bruce led off the one game he played CF. It must be a rule in the manager's handbook.

    What are the odds of Hatteberg and Castro both starting on Opening Day?

    should be ZERO but it seems to me a 50/50 shot at the moment.

    Hatteberg is the most likely to start between the two. I still can't imagine Castro being in the starting lineup but anything is possible.

    When Jeff Keppinger is in the lineup he should bat #1 or #2...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Dusty has had a penchant for playing vets. There is no denying it. The issue is whether it was more due to circumstance than anything else. I don't know the answer but we will find out. It should be a no-brainer that Bruce/Votto/Keppinger should be in the opening day lineup. However, I will believe it when I see it.

    He will when he plays SS. Third basemen must hit in a power spot. That's also in the handbook.
