Hello, friends, I hope the weekend is treating you well! It figures to get even better today, because there are TWO Yankees games this afternoon. The Bombers will host the Braves in Tampa, plus a travel squad will head to Sarasota to play the Orioles. Masahiro Tanaka gets the ball at home, while Clarke Schmidt starts the away game. I am: excited.
First pitch for both games is scheduled for 1:05 PM. The home game will only have a radio broadcast, but you can watch Schmidt on MLB.tv.
In the meantime, feel free to use this as your open thread. Enjoy!
- Do you think Schmidt could make the team out of camp?
- “We changed time zones?!”
2A. How long will it take you to get used to the time change?
Here’s a look at the lineups for the both the home game versus Atlanta and the road game against Baltimore:
