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

WEATHER: Close your eyes and imagine Florida. That’s exactly what the weather is like today.

UMPIRES: HP Jerry Layne, 1B Mark Wegner, 2B Chad Fairchild, 3B Damien Beal

ON THE LINE: Another chance for Marcus Thames to prove himself against a left-handed pitcher… This will be Joba Chamberlain’s first spring appearance as a one-inning reliever… Nick Johnson is making his second start at first base.

UPDATE, 1:19 p.m.: With two outs in the first, Posada doubled and Thames drew a walk in his first AB against Robertson. That brought Granderson to the plate, and the Tigers crowd gave him a pretty significant cheer. They still love him here.

UPDATE, 1:21 p.m.: Granderson doubles to right — off a lefty! — and it’s 1-0 Yankees.

UPDATE, 1:43 p.m.: Brandon Laird just caught a pop up to retire Gerald Laird. Ah, family.

UPDATE, 2:02 p.m.: Randy Winn made an on-target throw to the plate, but Johnny Damon beat the throw by a step. It’s 1-0 Tigers.

UPDATE, 2:04 p.m.: Solo home run by Marcus Thames.

UPDATE, 2:37 p.m.: Joel Zumaya just hit 100 mph on the gun here in Lakeland. Not bad for spring training.

UPDATE, 2:40 p.m.: Ramiro Pena just went down on 101 mph from Zumaya.
