Game starts 12:05pm PST, Corey Brock has the line up, I don't think there is a way to watch or listen to this game but DePo is going to provide some updates on his blog during the game. I take that back... Friar John says you can listen on MLB.com with a subscription.

- As you can see Kouz is the DH today. Edgar Gonzalez is taking his place at third base. In the same article the Padres got their first win of Spring Training when 4 of their minor league pitchers helped beat the Mariners in a golf tournament.
Maddux says it's doubtful he'll be in the dugout for any regular season games, but he might be back to camp later in the Spring.
- Mark Worrell is a youtube sensation because he has 1,400 page views and only 5 2/3 innings pitched. Gaslamp Ball has videos more popular than that with zero innings pitched, booyah!
- Friar John has a listing of the games that will be televised on the MLB network.
- Eckstein has a hard time seeing runners when he plays second base. "I can remember seeing Ken Caminiti, and I thought, 'Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?'"
- Everybody is so worried about LRod starting at shortstop. He'll be fine. “I don't want to put too much pressure on myself,” Rodriguez said. “I want to do what I did here last year – play my game and help the team win the game.”
- Mark Prior is a little full of himself: "If I can get back to 80 percent or 90 percent of what I used to be, then that's still pretty good..."
