Mat Latos v. Ervin Santana

RADIO: WSAI; WEB: MLB.com Audio, Gameday


There's no point in getting lathered up about spring lineups, but there's often not much else to talk about with these games. The thing I don't like about hitting Mesoraco last is that he's one of those guys who needs the reps - and, ostensibly, is competing for a spot with Miguel Olivo. Dusty's insistence on hitting most of his catchers behind everyone but the pitcher has always been mildly annoying, but at least this year Cozart is likely to be hitting in his rightful placce.

Don't hurt yourselves.
