Dice-K in Disney

Yes, here we are, at Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex, getting ready for an all-Japanese pitching matchup this afternoon. Dice-K, fresh off another World Baseball Classic MVP, is pitching against Braves rookie Kenshin Kawakami. Should be fun.

One of the cool parts about Spring Training is when highly-touted prospects get to be Minor League extras for the day. That is happening today for the Sox, as Che-Hsuan Lin — a native of Taiwan — is making the start for the Red Sox in right field and batting ninth
You might remember Lin from the Futures Game at Yankee Stadium last year, when he belted a home run and was MVP. He is a very good defender with speed — he stole 33 bases for Greenville last year — and is a developing hitter.

The Red Sox have Rocco Baldelli leading off today, followed by Dustin Pedroia, Jason Bay, Kevin Youkilis, Mike Lowell, Nick Greeen, Chip Ambres, Dusty Brown and Lin.
