Just one game today
It was good to get stretched out yesterday with a doubleheader, but just a mere nine innings here at City Of Palms today!
Jon Lester‘s first start of the spring is in progress.
Jason Bay was a story for the Pittsburgh media this morning, as this was the first time the left fielder has seen his former team — the Pirates — since that July 31 afternoon when he was traded for some guy named Manny Ramirez.
Jason was at his self-deprecating best when a reporter noted to him that he went from unheralded in Pittsburgh to the lead on SportsCenter every night.
“Was it the Canadian SportsCenter?” quipped Bay.
In other news, Brad Penny and Jonathan Papelbon both threw 40-pitch BP sessions on the backfield. Papelpon will make his first appearance of the spring on Sunday at Hammond Stadium in a game that will also include Josh Beckett and Tim Wakefield.
