This spring has been pretty boring. Absent a little Henry-Steinbrenner rhetorical swordplay, the Shelley Duncan goon show, and the usual injury and contract concerns, this hasn’t been a terribly exciting or drama-filled spring for either team. I’m pretty sure that’s led to the dearth of posts we’ve seen this March — and certainly why I’d completely forgotten the storied rivals were meeting today. After all, when the games don’t count, it’s hard to get all excited.
The Yanks lead, 8-4, heading into the late innings. Bartolo Colon showed he still can’t do anything against the Bombers, Julian Tavarez showed why he should not be a fifth starter, and Chris Carter and Brandon Moss showed exactly why they may be bigger cogs on offense this season than we’d expected. They’ve been raking the ball all spring.
Comment away on the game, on the spring, or on anything else that crosses your mind today.
