Joba is starting on YES

The first televised game of the year is on YES today.

Joba is starting. I'll be back later after watching. The team is using a lineup pretty close to what I expect to see opening week with Nick Swisher in RF, Melky in CF.
In the middle of the first, Joba is getting hit pretty hard as he is a little wild high.

First Game of Spring

Due to the WBC, the games are starting earlier in the year than usual. A-Rod homered in his first at bat and journeyman pitcher Brett Tomko started for the pinstripers. Tomko is a non roster free agent invitee, hoping to catch on as a spot starter or long reliever. He tossed 2 strong innings.

The only other pitchers of note to throw were Veras and Igawa. Veras was in trouble most of the time, though he did get the win (as if that mattered.) Igawa had a decent, if unremarkable inning.

The next game is Thursday as Phil Highes takes the mound agianst the AL Champion Rays. I still have trouble typing that.
