Spring training thread: Pirates travel to Evil Empire

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Oakland Athletics Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates take on the Yankees at Himself Field at 1:05 PM, with Jameson Taillon on the mound. Tom Prince will manage the next two games, as Clint Hurdle is attending a funeral. Francisco Cervelli will be playing his last game for the Pirates before joining Team Italy in the WBC, which makes me pretty nervous. Today’s lineup is a Sunday special, but it’s still a lot more interesting than the broken down veterans we saw so much in the past:

  1. Max Moroff, SS
  2. Alen Hanson, 2B
  3. Francisco Cervelli, DH
  4. John Jaso, 1B
  5. Eric Wood, 3B
  6. Jose Osuna, RF
  7. Barrett Barnes, LF
  8. Jacob Stallings, C
  9. Danny Ortiz, CF

Following Taillon will be Nick Kingham, Clay Holmes, Antonio Bastardo, A.J. Schugel and Dan Runzler.
