There are times even spring training baseball can be riveting. Mariano Rivera facing Ryan Howard is one of those times.
Mo struck him out on three pitches. I need to ask, but I think the last two were changeups. Howard looked down at Jorge Posada after the second pitch and seemed to be asking, “What was that?”
Hideki Matsui is 2 for 3 so far and is 15 for 42 this spring. He seems determined to make up for last season, even though he has nothing to be sorry about.
