GameThread: Red Sox (SS) @ Orioles, 1:05

New, 231 comments

The Red Sox dare not bring their entire team to suffer embarrassment at your eventual 2011 Grapefruit League Champion Baltimore Orioles. So, instead, we get about half their team.

This game is actually being broadcast on radio in Baltimore on WBAL and the usual MLB mobile and computer outlets. If you're in NESN's market, you were originally scheduled to get this game, but it's been switched to the BOS/FLA split-squad game instead. Can't have the denizens of Red Sox Nation going into a collective depression just yet at the realization they're already playing for second.

According to The (Baltimore) Sun, Brad Bergesen will make his second exhibition start. Mark Hendrickson, Jim Johnson. Michael Gonzalez and Clay Rapada also are scheduled to pitch. Alfredo Aceves will start for Boston.

Let's Go O's!
