Spring Game 1: Yankees at Blue Jays

Here is todays starting lineup for the first Grapefruit league game of the year. It is great to have baseball back. Arod will get his first taste of what is to come on the road. I would watch Brett Gardner as he battles Melky for the CF job and gets the first shot today. It is nice to see Shelly out there today as he brings lots of energy. Juan Miranda really has no shot with Big Tex coming over now but may be auditioning for other teams. It will be a while before Jorge actually catches in games, so this is a chance to see the other catchers, it will be good to see top prospects Jesus Montero and Austin Romine when they get on the field. You have to love the first 2 pitchers today Brett Tomko and then Kei Igawa. I am intersted to see how Dunn does as he is now being groomed as a reliever, David Robertson is fighting for a spot in the big league bullpen. Christian Garcia is another well thought of prospect but hasn't been able to stay healthy, he is still only 23 years. I thank Peter Abraham for having the information that is in the link below. He is of the Journal News and I will be back later with some ideas, it is great that the games are now beginning and we can really talk about baseball.
