2/25 – Yankees at Blue Jays

Wasn’t it Bob Uecker who said you can tell a lot about the way the season is going to go by the first batter? Top of the first inning here in Dunedin and Brett Gardner took a called strike from Brett Cecil.

The second pitch went over the right field wall. 1-0 Yankees. I’ll try to post some in-game updates on this thread. Don’t forget to check the Twitter as I’ll text in some notes from my cell. Quasi-Canadian Jordan Bastian is doing his best on the Blue Jays side.

I’m going to have to run off to the clubhouse shortly, so we’ll kill the in-game updates. But the Yankees are starting to sub in guys anyway. Austin Jackson made a nice catch in center field and just struck out swinging. Nice chattin’ with y’all, let’s do it again sometime.

Good start for Gardner.

Shelley K’ed, but a RBI single to right for Juan Miranda and the rout is on. 6-1 NYY. Miranda’s having himself a nice day but A-Rod is still going to be the story, you’d have to think.

Miranda just made a web gem wandering into foul territory up the right field line and snagging a foul pop off Millar’s bat with a sprawling dive. Nice job avoiding Cano and Swisher. Too bad we can’t see a replay.

3 up 3 down for the Yanks. Duncan FO3, Miranda K, Linden K looking.

Great thing about Spring Training is you hear everything. The unmistakable voice of Kevin Millar yelling, “got it got it got it,” for example.
