3/28/09 Reds @ Rays; Hammel Tries For 5th Spot

New, 73 comments

Game Time: 1:05

TV/Radio: 620 WDAE

Lineup:

Aki Iwamura, 2b
Carl Crawford, lf
Evan Longoria, 3b
Carlos Pena, 1b
Pat Burrell, dh
Dioner Navarro, c
Ben Zobrist, cf
Gabe Gross, rf
Jason Bartlett, ss
Jason Hammel, p

Things to watch:  Jason Hammel pitches one last time in hopes of winning the 5th starter position.

This is may very well be the opening day lineup in Boston, unless Matt Joyce ends up winning the CF spot over Ben-Zo.  How much better would that lineup look if B.J. Upton was penciled in?
