Hoping I'll be home in time to watch it. I was able to see the first few innings yesterday. Don't think we're going to see any chin music today.

I'll be watching! I always liked Lilly.
Peg: Oh Al! Did you miss me?
Al: With every bullet, so far.

Nice to see Ted Lilly again. He was solid.

It's looking like Castro is going to be batting 3rd more often than not this year.

Yeah, seems like Sveum is ready to let him get adjusted there. Could be as much about 2013 as it is about 2012.

I don't have any problems with it, just seems that he's trying to pull the ball a little more so far this spring.

I was going to say the same thing. Outside fastball, instead of going with it, trying to pull it, and, predictably, he rolls over it with a grounder to short. Happens every time you try to pull that outside fastball.
