4/1/09 GDT: Twins @ Rays; Opening Day Lineup?

New, comments

Game Time: 1:05

TV/Radio: MLB.com

Lineup:

Akinori Iwamura 2B
Carl Crawford LF
Evan Longoria 3B
Carlos Pena 1B
Pat Burrell DH
Matt Joyce CF
Dioner Navarro C
Gabe Gross RF
Jason Bartlett SS

Pitchers: RH James Shields

Things to watch: Hmmm the lineup today looks exactly like the opening day lineup I have in mind right down to the starting pitcher. Should we take Matt Joyce starting in centerfield as a sign? Adam Kennedy has been sent down and Joyce has made a late charge this spring.

Finally, the grapefruit season comes to an end as the Rays will head to Philadephia to make up two world series games that were won by J.C. Romero, who tested positive for a banned substance earlier on in the season.

Oh, not really? Then why are they playing two games in Philadelphia? Your guess is as good as mine.
