The Sox will be playing the Yankees one week from right now. Here’s what they have left in spring training:
Monday — Rays at 7:05: Josh Beckett makes his final start of the spring
Tuesday — at Tampa Bay at 1:05 (ESPN): Casey Kelly gets a shot against one of the best teams in the game. Should be interesting.
Wednesday — at Baltimore at 1:05: Jon Lester’s final tune-up.
Thursday — Minnesota at 1:05 (ESPN): Mayor’s Cup tilt for pride only as John Lackey starts.
Friday — Washington at 1:05: Goodbye to the Fort with Clay Buchholz on the mound.
Saturday — Vs. Nationals in Washington at 4:05: Seemed like a good idea before the opener was moved to Sunday. Tim Wakefield and Daisuke Matsuzaka will split the pitching duties.
Minor league schedule for this week:
Monday: Daisuke Matsuzaka, Boof Bonser, Manny Delcarmen
Tuesday: Tim Wakefield
Wednesday: Jonathan Papelbon and Hideki Okajima
Did anybody out there have Duke, Butler, West Virginia and Michigan State? I sure didn’t. I’m rooting for the Mountaineers
