Spring Training: The Pirates again!

This will already be the third matchup against Pittsburgh this spring ("I'm not going back to Pittsburgh!" (7:00 mark)).

CC goes for the Yanks while some guy named Charlie Morton starts for Pitt.

The game will air on YES at 1:05.

Update by jscape:

This made me laugh, via LoHud:

For all you Edwar Ramirez fans out there: The Yankees just announced they’ve traded him to the Rangers for the immortal "cash considerations." Ramirez was designated when Chan Ho Park was put on the roster.

If you consider that money will basically be used to offset Chan Ho Park's salary, it means that the Rangers are still paying for CHP.

  • Postgame notes -

CC was awful in the first, great in the second, bad in the third (2.1 ip, 5 er, 7 h, 1 bb, 2 k). No worries though; CC's second ST start last year was nearly identical.

Romulo Sanchez is becoming a dark horse for the bullpen with his dazzling velocity. He gave up a hit and a walk in 1.1 innings with two K's (and sat 94-97 MPH).

NJ cracked two solo-homers and Grandy broke his Ofer-spring by shooting a triple to the right-center gap.

Career minor-leaguer Jon Weber hit two doubles while Posada had two singles.
