The Yankees will face the Twins for the second straight day. Yesterday’s game resulted in a 5-4 loss. Joba will make his first appearance this spring, and hopefully we see a better end result today.

Chamberlain vs Liriano is a terrific match up, but of course they won’t be pitching very much. This is only spring training, so you won’t see them go deep into the game. I’ll be back after the game to recap. Enjoy the game.
