Grapefruit League 2011

I took the Pirates last night on the Over-night line at -106. Bucks are at home hosting Baltimore O's. Somehow I mistook the split squad dates and thought O's had a day night game going on, but that's not the case. O's are about 15 minutes away and they'll come ready to play. Maholm and the rest of Pirates pitchers are lined up and maybe the match up does go to the home team, but the late line move advantage goes to Baltimore.

MLB Cactus League Saturday

Cactus League
Cincinnati Reds at Los Angeles Dodgers
3:05 ET in Glendale, AZ.

Reds line up likely to have most of the regulars. Bronson Arroyo will start along with Logan Ondrusek, Jordan Smith, Jose Arredondo, Scott Carroll and Jeremy Horst on slate. Dodgers coming off a Friday night game at Camelback Ranch 5-3 loss to SF Giants. It was a regular season like match up Garland hitting Giant, Cody Ross, and Zito payback to Dodger, Marcus Thames. Emotion filled game was lost by the relief corp of Matt Geuerrier and Ron Mahay. Now they turn around from night to day game. Dodgers will continue to look at pitchers including non-roster invitees Lance Cormier, Jon Hube, Roman Colon, Oscar Villareal and Wilkin De La Rosa. Reds continue to show strength in their pitching and good chance to get to the relief corp again.
