ST9: Faux Rangers lose to Giants 13-9

Isn’t there supposed to be a rule in spring about fielding a representative team on road trips? Our starting lineup this game had just one regular in it, Gerald Laird. The other starters were mostly guys who likely won’t be with us in April, with he possible exception of Jason Botts; maybe Marlon Byrd – but my point is that most of these guys aren’t the real indiciative lineup.
And as you go down the box score, not many of the guys they were pulled for were destined to be with the big club, unless you get into pitchers – most of those guys would be. Which actually makes it feel worse, as we gave up a boatload of runs and hits (13,17 respectively). What’s amusing to me is the text based box score that I copy during Spring Training doesn’t even have the pitchers’ lines listed. :) Ugly all over the place. 22 runs and 31 hits.
Blech.
