The Rockies are splitting the squad yet again as they double up on Cactus League games. The first will be against the Cincinnati Reds at 2:10 pm, the second against the Arizona Diamondbacks at 8:10. The later game features more regulars, perhaps to give them a taste of nighttime ball.
Brett Anderson gets the start in game one. He's had a strong, healthy spring, and will be a critical cog in the Rockies rotation this year.

Starting in the second game is recent acquisition Felix Hernandez, the 2011 Cy Young winner and...*puts finger to earpiece*...scratch that, that's Pedro Hernandez, a Minor League free agent signed in the winter. It's interesting to see Arenado bat second, as that might actually be a good spot for him. Of course, I still like Cuddyer there.
