It's been a long winter, but now it's time for games to begin again. Today we find ourselves in Port Charlotte taking on the 2008 American League Champion Rays. Edinson Volquez will take the mound to start the game with at least Johnny Cueto and Homer Bailey following at some point during the game. Should be interesting to see how the three guys perform against live hitters this early in camp.

If you are wondering who made the trip to Port Charlotte, here is the travel roster (PDF) for today's game, courtesy of Reds media relations intern Jim Misudek.

The game is on the radio today, but maybe not in all of the normal markets, so check local listings. If you want to follow without the audio, try the gameday link. Kick your feet up, grab a cold one, and blow off work. Baseball's back, baby!
