Remember when we were all excited about spring training games starting and being able to watch baseball again? Well, that lasted a day. Because for reasons unbeknownst to man, the game yesterday was not televised. All we know is what the twitters of people who attended tell us. Ivan Nova had a solid debut, and Jacob Lindgren did not. However this is only the beginning of spring training, so it's likely by the end we're saying the opposite about both of these pitchers. Plus, I do say "I'll believe it when I see it" often, and so the games not being televised let's me live in reality where Nova is bad and Lindgren can be good.
What I have no doubts about, however, is Alex Rodriguez aka #BAEROD. On his first swing of the year, A-Rod promptly launched a two-run bomb. If you're wondering why I can easily believe this, it's because, I can see this:
Even though this home run gave the Yankees the lead, they would go on to lose the game, oh well. They get to try again today.

Song of the Day
Brother My Brother by Blessid Union of Souls
It's PokéWeek on Pinstripe Alley. Today's song comes from the first Pokémon movie, Mewtwo Strikes Back. Those familiar with the movie, will probably recognize the song from when the origina Pokémon are fighting the clones. As always please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your game thread for today's game. The Yankees will send Bryan Mitchell to face Justin Verlander and the Tigers. This is the lineup Joe Girardi will be sending out today:
Once again, we will be stuck without a broadcast, even though we learned yesterday they do have people taping the games. It's 2016, you'd think all the games would be televised by now.
