2009 World Series Preview? Phillies Visit Red Sox

Posted by Tim Malcolm, Sun, March 22, 2009 12:10 PM Comments: 9

Call it early prognostication gone crazy, but I’m someone who can dig a Phillies-Red Sox fall classic in October 2009. Whether that’s the case, the Phils and Red Sox will meet today in Fort Myers. Game time is 1:05 p.m.

Fresh off an outstanding start against the Reds and potential opening night starter talk, Brett Myers will face the Sox. On the injury front, Jason Donald — ankle pain — should be set to play today. Greg Dobbs tweaked his hamstring and sat out yesterday; he should be fine. Marcus Giles has a sore elbow (hit by pitch) and won’t be available.

The lineup: Cairo (SS) / Dobbs (RF) / Utley (2B) / Howard (1B) / Mayberry (CF) / Stairs (LF) / Feliz (3B) / Coste (C) / Kendrick (P).

Moyer, Phillies Visit Burrell, Rays

raysJamie Moyer and JA Happ will take the hill when the Phillies visit the Rays at Port Charlotte, Fla. Gametime is 1:05 p.m.

The 46-year-old lefty is coming off a solid start against the Tigers. He struck out five in four innings, letting up just a run. Happ, meanwhile, mowed down the cats with a seven-strikeout pefromance in three frames. The latter is immeresed in the Fight For Fifth, seemingly in the lead with Chan Ho Park for that final pitching rotation spot.

No word on if the returning Phils are scheduled to play, but one aspect overlooked: The great Matt Stairs has returned. However, he’s finding himself entrenched in his own battle, staring down the hot-hitting John Mayberry Jr. for that fifth outfielder spot.

Listen to the game here.
