Your author attends his first Major League Baseball game in more than two years when the Red Sox face the Yankees tonight (7:05 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-network ) in New York City, a small village just outside of his hometown metropolis of Hartsdale, New York.

But enough about me. Nathan Eovaldi, the former Yankee, will face his old team, which is 2.5 games back of the Sox to start the weekend showdown. The Yankees haven’t played their best ball yet, which is scary, and Mike King, who is starting for the pinstripes, is likely not going to be super long for the game, but the innings he gives this year have tended to be good. Eovaldi you (and they) know about: It’s just a matter of which Nate shows up.

At the time of this writing I can hear thunder so it’s possible this game is delayed, but it seems likely to clear out before too long, so the Sox can start their road trip in earnest. I’m choosing to ignore the Houston series and I strongly suggest you do the same. Except I will note that the lineup is largely similar to the last game of that series, so not totally. Anyhow, look for me. I’ll be the guy.
