James Sheilds, our second day starter, will take the mound. Also pitching, Rule 5 draftee Cesar Cabral (LHP) and Rob Delaney (RHP). Both men are hoping to make the bullpen as one-out men.

The front four should be our normal top of the lineup. It will be interesting to see Dan Johnson hitting 5th, as situationally that position is prime for RBIs.
The Phillies will put Roy Oswalt on the mound. A veteran like Sheilds, it will be fun to see how many hit we can gather from the Philly 3rd starter.
Recently cut, former NY Metropolitan Luis Castillo (a no show earlier this week for the Phillies) will be in the line up at second base for the Phillies.
John Jaso is still out after a contusion to the groin, which sounds terribly painful. He may miss opening day, according to Topkin, which may bring Chirinos to the 25 man roster!
