Word on the street is that Scioscia has named Ortiz as his...wait for it...fourth starter, with Lackey fifth and Sele taking the bullpen role. Okay, this fourth/fifth starter nonsense doesn't really mean anything, except that Lackey and Ortiz have been about equally unimpressive this spring. Don't be fooled - Lackey was never in serious danger of not making the rotation.
More to come when I confirm this.
