Quick Thoughts for the Red Sox spring training matchup with Tampa Bay at jetBlue Park Friday, March 4
- WEEI isn’t carrying today’s game, so I’ll be listening to other games while watching the play feed on MLB At Bat.
- Boston’s likely regular season starting lineup is intact today (with the notable start of Chris Young in left instead of Rusney Castillo who went 0-for-3 in his first appearance of the spring last night and will not start today). It goes Betts, Pedroia, Bogaerts, Ortiz, Ramirez, Sandoval, Young, Swihart and Bradley. All told, that’s a pretty good looking lineup in theory.
- Joe Kelly, who continues to be the most intriguing pitcher in the rotation for me, gets the start today.
