Yes, that is Manny Ramirez batting leadoff; Maddon apparently wants to get him his plate appearances early in the game. Also, Jeremy Hellickson will pitch in his first spring training game today, likely only throwing for one inning as the Rays ease him back from his hamstring injury.

Final chance to win Jonah Keri Points ("Joints")!

  • How many strikeouts will Hellickson get?
  • Which reliever will allow a run or more? It seems like that's becoming a daily habit.*
  • Considering I learned so much about Daniel Mayora last time we did this, who's "Vogt RF"?

*Tongue-in-cheek alert.
