YES YES YES..no, not just the network..Yankees baseball begins today. Spring training games that is. The Yankees open a home and home series with the Philadelphia Phillies today at 1:00 ET. And YES, it will be televised on YES!
We'll get our first look at Bartolo Colon and find out if pinstripes really are slimming. David Phelps, one of the minor leaguers with a very outside shot of making the rotation will also pitch. Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson, Hector Noesi, and Eric Wordekemper will all take the hill as well.
Andrew Brackman is suffering a groin injury and has been shut down until Tuesday, putting a damper on his chances for one of the final two spots in the rotation.
