Pedroia 2b
Napoli 1b
Saltalamacchia dh
Middlebrooks 3b

Lester p

UPDATE, 8:08: The Rays lineup, with Kelly Johnson at first today, but without the obvious St. Patty's Day choices, Albernaz and O'Malley:

Rays lineup:

Escobar ss
Johnson 1b
Longoria 3b
S-Rod cf

DEVELOPING: The Rays will spend St. Patrick's Day at what is now being called Fenway South, the spring home of the Red Sox also known as JetBlue Park.

RHP Alex Cobb, who has had a great spring, will be on the mound for the Rays against Boston LHP Jon Lester.

The teams got a little hot during a confrontation in the fifth inning when Alfredo Aceves hit Sean Rodriguez with a pitch and then started barking at him.

Lineups soon.
