Baseball on a crisp spring eve. What could be better? (The same, of course, plus a victory for our Bombers.) The peregrinating Pinstripers return tonight for the first in a series with the Birds of Baltimore. Bob Sheppard, the wonderful ageless wonder, will be back in his announcer’s chair, and we hope this is a sign of good things to come. On the hill will be Chien-Ming Wang, workmanlike in his last start, and ex-Met Kris Benson, who stifled our boys but good last year while playing for the crosstown rivals. We can only hope the departure of a certain someone has cost him his mojo. We’ll find out. Consider this your open thread for comment on all the action.
