Who's On First?

As spring training winds down and the twenty five man roster is starting to take shape, my attention is now to focus on the opening series versus the New York Yankees here at Tropicana Field. The opening day starters have been named, CC Sabathia for the Yankees against James Shield for our Rays. This prompts a very intersting question, one I'd guess is open for discussion. Does Joe Maddon play this game like it's mid July and use a RH line up that does not feature Carlos Pena or Matt Joyce or does he concede to opening day and give those players the nod. Pena who I don't believe will be platooned much is awful versus Sabathia, like in 39 PA he owns a slash line of .114/205/314 for a whopping .519 OPS.

If you believe he'll platoon, offer some ideas as to how he'll approach it. Below you'll find a poll as to whether or not you believe a platoon is in order
