Lackey Set To Face Mets

If the rain allows it, this afternoon's game against the Mets will be on MLBTV. John Lackey will make his third start of the spring. His first two starts: 5-3-0-0-1.

Jonathan Papelbon (5 games, 5 innings, 0 runs), Hideki Okajima, Ramon Ramirez, Manny Delcarmen, and Daniel Bard (4 innings, 7 K) are scheduled to pitch in relief. All of the non-outfielder starters are in the lineup.

Yesterday, lefty Felix Doubront pitched three innings of one-hit ball against Tampa Bay, extending his spring shutout streak to seven innings. David Ortiz got two hits for the second day in a row and John Lester threw 60 pitches against Houston. But Boston did not score in either of its games, losing 3-0 to the Astros and 7-0 to the Rays.

The source of Jed Lowrie's fatigue? He has mononucleosis. He has missed four games.

Lowie just can't seem to catch a break, can he?

Mets win 4-2, with Ram-Ram getting the L.

And this was the first Ram-Ram. I've gotta get this down: S is the old, A is the new, so...I'll just remember Soriginal and Anew! No. Hmmm...

(I still can't remember which Greg Harris had which middle initial.)

(Today's Lackey-Tatis match-up was like some kind of Latin term for breastfeeding.)
