The inevitable is here.
Red Sox and the Yankees. Their first game of the new year is tonight at 7, when Sox prospect Abe Alvarez faces off against Chien-Ming Wang. I'm really excited.
Just so we're clear: I'm excited about seeing Alvarez pitch; not necessarily watching the Sox play the Yankees.
The Red Sox are a respectable 3-1 this spring training, while the Yankees are a near-cellar dwelling 0-3.
Talk about whatever you want in the comments section. It's the reason I've got this extremely important, spring training open thread going.
Let the Yankee bashing begin ... NOW.
