So, which line-up do you think has a better chance of winning? I think in terms of offense, I like the one against the Angels, though that does have the obvious advantage of a designated hitter rather than the pitcher. However, the arms in the Indians game should, health permitting, all break camp with the major-league team. Looks like Reed will make his first appearance in a full Cactus League game, and with only ten days left until the first game of the regular season, he won't have many more chances to knock off the rust.

Believe both games are available through MLB Audio today, though you'll be stuck with the road feeds, since neither are being broadcast locally.
