Opening day of the spring exhibition  schedule, very exciting indeed. So in an effort not to sound like  boxing announcer  Michael Buffer LLLLLLLLets get ready for baseball.

Spring training is very exciting we get to see a bunch of players that we have heard about  but may never have seen. We get to see the players of old and see if they have made adjustments in the offseason.  Today we will probably see most of the starters for a couple of innings then it should be all role players, people biding for a spot on the roster, and non-roster invitees who are mostly young kids just finding out what major league spring training is all about.

Usually someone makes the team out of the blue that we didn’t expect. Who might do it this year? Im routing for Kevin Russo to win a spot as the utility infielder. Only time will tell. Today we will most likely see these pitchers:

Chad Gaudin, Sergio Mitre, Alfredo Aceves, Jonathan Albaladejo, Wilkins Arias, Jason Hirsh, Royce Ring, Amaury Sanit, Zach Segovia

So today its Yankees vs Pirates 3:00 Eastern time on the Yes Network. YOM Magazine will have the wrap up this evening after the game, so if you miss any of the action be sure to check back. You can also follow us on Twitter at YankeesMagazine.

I am so ready for baseball, are you ?
