Aaron Harang takes the mound today with an interesting lineup behind him. There is a lefty pitching for the Twins, Glen Perkins, but Baker has stacked the lineup with lefties - Dickerson, Bruce, Ward, and Jones. The right-handers that are sprinkled in are mainly youngsters with little or no chance of making the team. I suppose it's a good chance for the Reds to see if any of these guys can actually hit off of a lefty. No time better than the Spring to find this stuff out, I suppose.
The bullpen is full of guys on the fringe of the roster today. Check out the travel roster here (PDF).
Game time is 1:05pm. Those of you who have purchased the MLB Gameday Audio package will get to listen to the Twins broadcast today, if you so choose. The rest of us will have to follow along with Gameday. Such is our lot in life.
