Today: The Pirates are at the Yankees. Gametime is 1:05 at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. The game will be aired by 93.7 The Fan. A taped replay will run on MLB Network at 11PM.
Lineup (subs): Max Moroff SS (Phil Gosselin), Alen Hanson 2B (Chris Bostick), Fran Cervelli DH (Erich Weiss), John Jaso 1B (Joey Terdoslavich), Eric Wood 3B (Gift Ngoepe), Jose Osuna RF, Barrett Barnes LF, Jacob Stallings C (Christian Kelley) & Danny Ortiz CF. Gonna be a lot of shake-and-bake with the WBC players gonzo; Fran will take a couple of cuts today before leaving to join team Italy.

Pitchers: Jameson Taillon, Nick Kingham, Clay Holmes, Antonio Bastardo, AJ Schugel & Dan Runzler. A couple of nice young arms to sneak a peek at going today. JT got a couple of extra days off between turns; no physical problems, just part of the plan to keep him fresh.
Yesterday's Game: Rollin', rollin', rollin'…the Bucs won 3-2 over the Bosox yesterday. The only pitching blip was a two-run dinger off Wade LeBlanc, while Cutch, Freeser and Jose Osuna (he's en fuego, batting .538) chased home just enough runs. Josh, Gregory & Fran (he had two knocks) scored. King Kuhl, Tony Watson, Daniel Hudson, Jared Hughes & Pat Light put up goose eggs.
