Something That Looked Like Baseball Happened Yesterday

The Yankees had their first spring training game yesterday, besting the Pittsburgh Pirates with a walk-off 3-run homerun by Colin Curtis. Among the other highlights were a combined 6 scoreless innings by a trio of 5th starter hopefuls, Gaudin, Mitre, and Aceves. Royce Ring pitched 1.1 innings with 2 strikeouts after Albaladejo gave up 3 runs without recording an out.

"It was a great game." Explained Ring. "I was all like 'fwoooosh!'" He said describing the sound his fastball made.

Ring was not the only one excited to be back in baseball mode.

"You should have seen it!" Explained a visibly excited Nick Johnson. "That ball came into my wheel house and I was all like 'Bladow!' for a double. It was great!"

"Man I was so happy to get back to playing baseball." Said Mark Teixeira. "After waiting a few months I finally got two at bats. I savored each one. I wasn't even interested in getting a hit, I just liked hearing the ball be all like 'fwoooosh!'."

The Yankees had a great start to spring training, and today they will continue their schedule. We're starting to see something that looks like baseball!

You're asking for trouble Fernando!

Haha, I know I know. We'll see how far it carries, and keep a tally of the wounded.

Woohoo! Beat down on the pirates in the first game of spring training. All of our suffering through the winter seems so trivial now. Suck it Pittsburgh!

RJG Jinx? Nick Johnson out of today's line-up with a stiff lower back. He's already hurt.

Let's hope this is true.

Dammit Fernando! I knew it! Nick Johnson is as fragile as a terra cotta figurine. Your injury update must have pushed him over the edge!
