Orioles in Clearwater Today
Joe Blanton starts this afternoon’s game against the Orioles at Bright House Field. Scott Elarton follows him.
Elarton is an interesting story. He hasn’t pitched in the big leagues since 2008, but after a chance meeting with Ruben Amaro Jr. at Coors Field is trying to make a comeback.
Jim Salisbury and I are signing copies of The Rotation before the March 19 game against the Detroit Tigers at Bright House Field. I’ll pass along the exact time when I have it. So far we’ve received tremendous response about it.So if you’re in Clearwater and attending that afternoon’s game, stop by, sell hello and pick up a copy!
Of course, if you’re not at that game, the book is available at the Bright House Field team store.
Here’s today’s lineup against Baltimore:
- Jimmy Rollins, SS
- Placido Polanco, 3B
- Shane Victorino, CF
- Jim Thome, DH
- Hunter Pence, RF
- Ty Wigginton, 1B
