…of the 2009 World Series (rumor has it that that’s over?) but even in March it’s hard not to get excited about Doc Halladay vs. CC Sabathia in Clearwater Thursday afternoon. Expect to see Randy Winn and Nick Swisher, perhaps Robbie Cano too. None of them played in the Opener at George M. Steinbrenner Field Wednesday. I expect Joe Girardi will bring a representative team (at least to start) on the 20-minute drive.
The Yanks could face ex-pinstriper Jose Contreras too, while it’s doubtful ex-Phillie and new Yankee signee Chan Ho Park is ready for game action yet.
Will be cool, windy but sunny yet again. Stay tuned.
