Cliff Lee and Carlos Ruiz will see their first real spring action this afternoon as the Phillies take on Toronto in the Blue Jays’ Florida home. Lefty Ricky Romero pitches first for the opposition while former Phillie Ben Francisco will suit up against his old teammates.
We don’t believe today’s game is on TV but you can tune in to a radio broadcast at MLB.com.
Pitchers also scheduled to appear in today’s game include Kyle Kendrick, LHP Jeremy Horst, RHP Michael Schwimer, RHP J.C. Ramirez, and LHP Raul Valdes.
Aside from getting to see Cliff and Chooch get the battery back together this afternoon, what has gotten you excited about the first few games against the Yankees? Are you one of those people freaking out about Michael Martinez and Dom Brown’s bobbles?
Alternative questions that you should feel free to address: will Chase Utley play baseball this spring? Will Carlos Ruiz and Cliff Lee have a new high-five celebration for the 2012 season?
It’s never too chilly for some ice cream in Clearwater.
