At this point, who do you see as our RH set up man? Burton? Swarzak? Does Swarzak getting the start indicate more of a long relief/spot starter role (an immanent need with Baker and Marquis' issues)?

Revere is really making it hard to put him in a reserve role. Beat out another infield single. His ability to battle his tail off has to be eating at Gardy...

does anyone know why I can't get the mlb.com gameday thing to work? Do I need to download a plug-in, or is there some other site I can go to to follow the game?

2 out walk in 3rd is the only baserunner Swarzak has allowed thus far. 4-0 through 3.

Swarzak ran out of gas in the 4th, with 2 2-out walks. Gray in.

Gray gets Betimet 1-3 to end the inning. I'd guess Swarzak started today, since Pavano got slugged around vs BALT recently. Saw Seth's tweet on pavano pitching in Minor League game.

Carroll leads off w/walk. OPS now around .700 for the spring, despite .244 average.

Morneau must be batting about .500 (4 for 8 or so) since his 2 HR game. Small sample size, but good sign.

No-hitter spoiled by Andino, double to center, thrown out at 3rd. Perkins faces 3 in the 8th.
