Jason Marquis squares off against his old team. Here's the lineups, courtesy of LaVelle Neal:

CardinalsRafael Furcal, SS
Skip Schumaker, 2B
Lance Berkman, 1B
John Jay, CF
Tony Cruz, C
Daniel Descalso, 3B
Matt Carpenter, RF
Shane Robinson, LF
Zack Cox, DH

Adam Wainright, RHP

Twins

Ben Revere, LF
Jamey Carroll, SS
Joe Mauer, DH
Chris Parmelee, 1B
Ryan Doumit, C
Sean Burroughs, 3B
Brian Dinkelman, RF
Joe Benson, CF
Alexi Casilla 2B

Pitching: Jason Marquis, RHP



Oh, LaVelle also offers this wonderful nugget:

Spring training games are fake ones before the real ones start, but it would be nice for the Twins to remember what it's like to score runs. They have been shut out in back-to-back fields and have yet to homer in Target Canyon, er, Hammond Stadium.


Eesh...

Silly baserunning error by Revere (going too far off base of a shallow pop up) has him doubled up to end the inning for the Twins

I think that's already his second dumb move (other was a pickoff) in a small number of times on base.

Yeah... I think that if he continues this, his 25-man roster spot might not be that secure... long Spring; we'll see
