I'll do one since there isn't one yet.

Liriano vs. Jackson in the first game.

Great play by Jackson in the first on the DP.

I'm surprised Delmon Young hasn't done anything with the twins. For all the hype he had he doesn't even start.

We need to get our starting pitcher some run support.

This should be a fun game to watch. Anderson leads off and Grandy in the 5 hole. I'm kind of glad to see Guillen on the DL. Hopefully he comes back and is his normal self.

Larish and Thomas are also recalled. Rapada optioned down.

Hopefully Porcello can pitch a good game so we can keep him up here.

I don't like this lineup switch that much. I'd prefer we put Granderson in the 3 hole over Clete or just move Miguel up to the third spot.

i like the switch. it makes our whole lineup so strong

I think it's weird that of all people Clete is the 3 hitter. At first I thought Magglio must not be playing but he's batting 6th. Just seems kind of odd since Clete isn't a power hitter.

Good game so far. Porcello is pitching well and Anderson, and Cabrera are continuing to play well along with a good day from Clete. Porcello's pitch count seems really low so he could probably go for awhile.

clete played good last year when he was up. he has a future. also i always saw the number 3 spot as a contact spot, and 4 as the power guy. therefore, i think Clete at 3 is a good move

I didn't really get to watch him last year. It just kind of surprised me to see it. I usually see a number three as a mix between power and contact. Basically, a healthy and productive Ordonez.
