Here come the world champs. Sort of.

The Boston Red Sox irritated the Miami Marlins last when they brought the "B" team to a Grapefruit League game in Jupiter.
There may be some disappointment today at McKechnie Field, as well, where the Red Sox meet the Pirates for the second time in less than a week.
In fairness to the Red Sox, they played two games yesterday - a day game in Sarasota and a night affair at home in Fort Myers - so it is understandable that manager John Farrell wanted to rest some of his stars, even if some of you Sawx fans disapprove.
So here is the lineup for today's game. And if you want to catch a more familiar Pirates lineup, head south to Sarasota, where the other half of the team plays the Baltimore Orioles today at Ed Smith Stadium.
This game will be broadcast live on Root Sports in Pittsburgh and NESN in New England.
