Sexy Grapefruit Action

Phillies versus Yankees, it doesn't get sexier than that. Unless of course we're not talking baseball, then I could list a buttload of things (Teletubbies, Rosanne Barr, Miss Piggy, etc.). Anyway, I digress...official Grapefruit League action begins today with the Phils and Yanks facing each other in the warm Florida sunshine (bastards!).

Lineup:
1) Jimmy Rollins, SS
2) Ross Gload, DH
3) Raul Ibanez, LF
4) Ryan Howard, 1B
5) Ben Francisco, CF
6) Domonic Brown, RF
7) Jeff Larish, 3B
8) Brian Schneider, C
9) Wilson Valdez, 2B
SP- Cole Hamels
RP- Vance Worley, Ryan Feierabend, Brian Schlitter and Mike Zagurski

*Chase Utley is still sore from workouts and is being withheld from game action.

*Bartolo Colon starts for the Yankees. If he and CC Sabathia end up in the same rotation that would have to be a new record for girth. They might have to change the name of the mound to the rotunda. Badabum-ching!

*The Chad Durbin Saga has finally ended with him signing with the Indians. He wanted 2 years, more money than past seasons, and to play for a contender. He got none of that. Cleveland sucks and he got only 1 year/$800K. For the second straight year a Phils reliever overplayed their hand and ended up with less (Chan Ho Park last year).

J-Roll was a scratch from the lineup, so Valdez too his place.

Damn it felt good to hear baseball on the radio.
