Spring Training: New York Yankees @ Philadelphia Phillies Game Thread

The New York Yankees are playing a pair of split squad games today as a part of their Grapefruit League schedule and that first game comes this afternoon on the road against the Philadelphia Phillies. I love split squad games because myself as a fan gets a little bit of the best of both worlds. I get to see a ton of prospects get at bats since the rosters are spread thin and I also get to see a lot of regulars getting their turns and at bats as well.

Bryan Mitchell will start the road game for the Yankees and the game will start at approximately 1:05 pm ET. Watch out later tonight for the Yankees second game of the day back at home at George M. Steinbrenner Field. 


  1. I know it's early in Spring Training, but let the trash talking begin. It seems to me that the only players producing so far are the kids that are being blocked by the veterans. Do they come to camp more prepared? Are they giving more effort because they're trying to make an impression? Or are they actually just better than their veteran counterparts?

    1. Maybe, maybe and maybe.

      Do they come to camp more prepared? Yeah, probably. You don't see Mark Teixeira in the Winter Leagues and the AFL, you see Greg Bird there. Are they giving more effort? Absolutely, it's the difference between College Football (which is entertaining) and the NFL (which sucks). Are they better? Some of them are, yes. Some are not ready and some are just being dicked around.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
