Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 21, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

It’s raining pretty hard right now. This might pass quickly enough to play ball, but right now it’s pretty ugly and it’s hard to imagine the game starting on time, if it starts at all.

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m./YES Network

WEATHER: Not good. Forecast calls for rain all afternoon.

UMPIRES: Only three listed for today’s game: HP Mark Wegner, 1B Andy Fletcher, 2B Toby Basner

ON THE LINE: Phil Hughes is pitching out of the bullpen, still trying to make his case for the last spot in the Yankees rotation. He was terrific his last time out… The Tigers brought two left-handed pitchers, so Curtis Granderson could get another at-bat against a lefty… Marcus Thames and Jamie Hoffmann each have the day off.


UPDATE, 12:39 p.m.: Northwestern football coach Pat Fitzgerald is at the stadium today. He’s a good friend of Joe Girardi and brought his family to check out spring training. Girardi went to Northwestern, hence the connection. Fitzgerald was a heckuva player back in the mid-90s.

UDATE, 12:41 p.m.: While we’re waiting for the game to start, check out Marc Carig’s Q&A with Kevin Towers.
