Some guy named Peavy

Good morning from Peoria, where defending National League Cy Young winner Jake Peavy will make his Cactus League debut against the Padres parking-lot, "natural-rival" Seattle Mariners. We will see Peavy throw two innings today, followed by Glendon Rusch and a cast of others who will hopefully throws more strikes than we’ve seen thus far.Peavy

So, to the lineup already, right?

LF — Scott Hairston
2B — Tadahito Iguchi
CF — Jim Edmonds
2B — Tony Clark
SS — Khalil Greene
C — Michael Barrett
DH — Chip Ambres
RF — Paul McAnulty
3B — Luis Rodriguez
SP — Jake Peavy

My thoughts:
As you’ve likely noticed, the position players have been cut in half. They start every other day with everyone else capable of coming off the bench. More at-bats for Ambres and LRod (just made that up) with Hairston getting  a look at the top of the order. Also, it will be interesting today to see how many change-ups Peavy throws. He has vowed to throw some this spring.

Cheers, Corey
