It's finally here. The moment we've all been waiting for. It's our first chance to see Nathan Eovaldi pitch for the Yankees!
Today is the Spring home opener at Steinbrenner Field and it will be shown live on the YES Network with pregame coverage starting right now! (12:30pm)
Aside from seeing Eovaldi in action for the first time, there's another person, who will be experiencing his first live baseball game since 2013. You know who I'm referring to. But just in case you can't watch the game, Mike Francesa is going to have Sweeny Murti on his show this afternoon and he will be breaking down this person's at bats. Because it's not a media circus.
You guys, I'm just really excited to see baseball again. And I don't care that it's only Spring Training and that the game results don't count. Watching baseball means that warm weather is that much closer. I honestly didn't realize how much I missed the Yankees until I saw them arrive in Tampa last week.
Here's the Yankees lineup:
Gregorius 6 A-Rod DH McCann 2 Teixeira 3 Headley 5 Drew 4 Austin 9 Flores 7 Williams 8
Yes, the person who shall not be named is batting second. Your eyes are not deceiving you.
Anyway, play ball!
