I here you. Cliff Lee is starting for the Phillies and Buchholtz for Boston.

Of course, most of the potential regulars are starting the home game against boston and the scrubs traveled to play against Philly.

It's still early March but it's time for Benson to go about 3-5 I'd say, hopefully at least one of them against this quality righty.

Oh, and Escobar DH'ing. Not that there was any doubt what will decide whether he makes the final cut, but this spells it out plainly.

It was Parmelee but he was a late scratch with a sore groin.

Escobar can't hit but he is a very good glove at all three spots. He is an acceptable utility guy.

Saw something interesting today at the minor league complex. Reps are there from Wilson with gloves, and xbats. Buxton took quite awhile and then picked out a bat. The rep had him sign 3x5 cards. Three of them. As he said, the signature gets better every time. Theyll use this signature on his bats.

My point is that Escobar is not off to a good start at bat, his glove is a given and they apparently would rather watch a veteran like Olmedo in the field than him. They're straining to give Escobar some more live at-bats to prove himself, and DHing him could be a little reminder that his bat is what will decide his fate.

Benson loses a ball in the sun. Sounds like a pretty tough angle out there

Gibson getting roughed up. He's having trouble with his command, several wild pitches.

Benson nails Napoli at third, BOS scored on the play. 3-0 sox. 2 outs in the 3rd, Thielbar pitching

Olmeda strikes out looking, Benson strikes out on a curveball. End of 3

Willihammer

Pedroia bangs a double off the wall. Thielbar still pitching. 4-0 Sox, runners on 2 and 3rd

Willihammer

Thielbar hits someone in the head. Bases full, 2 outs, Thielbar's done

edit: Check that, Thielbar stays in

Willihammer

0-2 pitch to Napoli, home run scores 3. Bases weren't full? I can't keep it straight anymore. 8-0 Sox

Gibson didn't look like he very good stuff today, fastball was all over the place, changeup was good a few times but otherwise pretty iffy. A few bad breaks as well though but he wasn't missing many bats.

Revere thrown out stealing 2nd by Herrmann.

Trade Gibson for a new/fresh arm imo. Tommy Johns is going to take years of productivity from him. Hes done.

But can Hicks bunt?

Wow, 3 homers for Hicks on the day!He had one yesterday, too, but it was in 'exhibition' so it doesn't count towards his spring training total (derp).
