...series champions, that is. Yes, the Red Sox take the long way home from Florida, stopping off in Arizona for a couple of games. Normally, we play the Cubs, but since we face them in the first three regular-season games, wasn't much point in playing them immediately before that. Ortiz gets the start for us, while Bronson Arroyo goes for the Sox - pity we don't get to see Schilling.
It's actually a split-squad game, and perhaps even more important, Mike Gosling will be starting at HoHoKam for the other half of the team, against the Cubs. If he does well, the fifth spot in the rotation would be his. At time of writing, we're 7-2 up in the fifth, so that might be a good sign!
