Renyel Pinto is starting for the Marlins. Tankersley will pitch in the game.
Hanley Ramirez is playing ss for the Marlins and will bat lead-off.
Alex Gonzalez is wearing number 93 today. Someone forgot to put his bags on the bus, so he's cobbled together a uniform and borrowed a glove!
three up, three down for the Sox in the first.

I'm looking for Pauley to settle in, I've heard good things about him.
Youkilis reaches on an error in LF.
Actually, is it an error? Youks is on second, but it was apparently very catchable.
Good hustle, Kevin.
Bard walks. Calloway up with 2 on.
(Can you tell it's a slow day at work?)
(Is this a new feature? I keep hitting "Fast Reply" and it's editing my post.)
Bard ran for second, Youkilis didn't catch the sign, had to run late, and both are safe, bad throw from Marlins C.
Bases loaded for Enrique. Calloway HBP.
Enrique SF to LF, Youkilis scores. Murphy at bat, Moss on deck, 1st and 2nd.

I have no doubt about that. And, it's also exciting to see these kids working thier ass off and playing well, hopefully they do it in the regular season.
But, man. It's kinda hard, even in ST, to see a team with a $130M payroll getting crushed by a team with a $20M or so payroll, with the same prospects we traded to them, haha. Entertaining, funny, but a little unsettling. It'll be forgotten tomorrow, however.

And, after releasing Pokey, the Marlins' payroll is around $18.5 million. They've got two players making more than $1 million, Willis ($3.5M) and Moehler ($1.5M). The majority of the Marlins make the league minimum.
