4/12: Indians vs. Rangers
Bad cover tunes are blaring on Gateway Plaza, thousands of healthy people called in sick this morning and my buddy Josh is about four vodka tonics into his day.
So it’s your typical Monday afternoon in downtown Cleveland.
But the real festivities kick off at 3:05 p.m. ET, when the Indians take on the Rangers in the 2010 home opener at Progressive Field. Here are today’s lineups (with the notable absence of Grady Sizemore, who remains day to day with mid-back tightness):
INDIANS (2-4): SS Cabrera, CF Brantley, RF Choo, DH Hafner, 3B Peralta, 1B LaPorta, 2B Valbuena, LF Kearns, C Redmond. RHP Carmona (1-0, 4.50).
RANGERS (3-3): CF Borbon, 3B Young, LF Hamilton, DH Guerrero, RF Cruz, 1B Davis, 2B Arias, C Teagarden, SS Andrus. RHP Harden (0-0, 2.45).
