Chien-Ming Wang looked sharp yesterday in what was an important game for him.
The Yankees play the Devil Rays today in St. Pete and people will be watching to see if the Yankees retaliate for Francisco Cervelli getting run over on Saturday. Andy Pettitte starts today.
To me, this is a matter you let the Scranton Yankees settle with the Durham Bulls. Pettitte wasn’t even at the park when the incident happened on Saturday. Why should he risk suspension and hit somebody?
But baseball being baseball, we wouldn’t be surprised if something happens today. Just don’t expect some sort of brawl. As one Yankee veteran said to me yesterday, “If you think I’m running out there during a spring training game and getting my shoulder hurt by some fired-up kid on their team, you’re crazy.”
Meanwhile the world awaits a handshake between Joe Girardi and Don Zimmer.
