Game Thread: Throwing out the young gunsBy
The Yanks square off against the Blue Jays today in what will be a test of the Yanks’ young guns. While the next few games will be televised, today’s game is the last chance to see Major League for a few days. Wang and Pettitte will not throw against division rivals.
Meanwhile, the Yanks will throw their young tandem of Ian Kennedy and Joba Chamberlain at Toronto today. Kyle Farnsworth will get some tosses in as well. After last night’s Phil Hughes game, Yankee fans would be comforted by a dominant Kennedy/Chamberlain outing. But worry not about Mr. Hughes. It’s only Spring Training.
Today’s game is on ESPN, and friend-of-RAB Keith Law will be joining the telecast in the 5th to talk about the Yanks and Red Sox minor leaguers. Be sure to check that out. The game will also be carried on MLB.tv and should be available here on Gameday at 1:05 or so.
