Grab a green beverage and root on the Rockies against Timmy and the Giants.

Jeff Gross

Happy St. Patrick's Day! The Colorado Rockies in a rare evening Spring Training game match up against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants at 4:15 Purple Mountain Time. I am having trouble determining our starter as one source says Jhoulys Chacin while another says Tyler Chatwood. Meanwhile, the Rockies lineup tonight looks like a possible preview for opening day with the probable exception of catcher:

1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF

2. Josh Rutledge (R) 2B

3. Carlos Gonzalez (L) LF

4. Troy Tulowitzki (R) SS

5. Michael Cuddyer (R) RF

6. Todd Helton (L) 1B

7. Ramon Hernandez (R) C

8. Chris Nelson (R) 3B

9. Jhoulys Chacin (R) P

On the other side, the World Champion (it hurts as much to type as it does to read) Giants are also fielding a major league team (Sandoval a late scratch):

1. Andres Torres (S) CF

2. Marco Scutaro (R) 2B

3. Hunter Pence (R) RF

4. Buster Posey (R) C

5. Brandon Belt (L) 1B

6. Joaquin Arias (R) 3B

7. Brandon Crawford (L) SS

8. Gregor Blanco (L) LF

9. Tim Lincecum (L) P

It should be a good game to see where everyone is at with two weeks to go until the games start counting.MLB.com will have the television and radio broadcast but Root Sports is not carrying the game. Please join me for discussion and I will try to provide updates for those unable to view the game. Also, there is a good possibility of OT March Madness discussion as the brackets get announced.
