Baseball is back and I for one am very happy. I know this is ‘JUST’ spring training, it is still my Yankees on my TV. Yesterday was their first real spring training game, they played Friday but that was an exhibition game. Yesterday they played the Phillies at their park, today they are playing their ‘home opener’ of spring training, also against the Phillies.
My plan was to blog during the game like I do sometimes during the regular season, but as sometimes happens, something happened and I didn’t. I’m watching the game right now, all the starters are out so now we get to see what the new guys, the ones we might see if someone gets injured or later in the season. It is now 7-3 Yankees. The Phillies are dropping balls all over the place. Hunter Pence of the Phillies scored 2 runs. He also scored 2 runs yesterday. The first 2 runs yesterday both with a home run. Hunter Pence is my new least favorite player.
In off-season news, AJ and Jesus Montero were traded. AJ is now out for 8 to 10 weeks with a broken orbital bone. He hit it during a bunting contest. Why the Pirates let him participate boggles my mind. Jesus Montero was hit in the face during the first spring training game and had to leave the game. Coincidence or curse?
So this is my first official post of the 2012 season. Off to a great start!
