Lineup for the big rematch

03.05.10 at 9:13 am ET

News flash: Mike Cameron is leading off in the Red Sox’ game against … you guessed it … the Twins. (That’s right, the same Mike Cameron whose career was helped shaped by Michael Jordan.)

The Sox’ lineup: Cameron CF, Hall RF, Martinez C, Drew DH, Lowrie 2B, Anderson 1B, Kalish LF, Navarro 3B, Iglesias SS, Lester P. Following up the Red Sox’ starter will be Tim Wakefield, followed by last year’s WBC closer for Team Puerto Rico, Fernando Cabrera, followed by a finalist for the reality show “Knight School,” Dustin Richardson, followed by one of the Ramon Ramirez’ (The one with the ‘A’ in the middle), and finally Robert Manuel and Randor Bierd.

Carl Pavano, he of the one-year, $7 million contract, will start for the Twins. By the way, the Twins’ payroll at a surprisingly high $93 million this season.

As for Cameron, the last time he led off in the regular season game was in 2008, a season in which he manned the lineup’s top spot 13 times (hitting .204). Also of note: Drew has only been in the cleanup spot four times since joining the Red Sox, but is hitting .571 in the spot with four hits in seven at-bats to go with a remarkable five walks.
