The first game for the Yankees this Spring and it was really fun to watch!

The Yanks played the Phillies today and it was just great to see the kids mingling with the vets and what they can do. Not without the Spring blues of course.  The Yankees won 9-4 with Bryan Mitchell getting the win in this meaningless game. 

Gleyber Torres and Ji-Man Choi both committed errors. Frazier, Judge, Fowler and Sanchez struck out... among others.  No biggie. In fact, none of this is terribly important. This is when you start to work things out anyway.

The pitching by the Yankees was pretty decent.  The offense was wonderful.

Aaron Judge struck out the first time at the plate. The second time he smacked one that hit the scoreboard. It was a monster shot.  Wonderful to see that home run.

Miguel Andujar and Dustin Fowler both tripled.  That was great as well.

Look, I'm not going into some in depth analysis about any of this only to tell you that seeing these kids play was pretty great. The veterans had their moments good and bad as well.  That's the game.

In the end, it was a nice win on a gorgeous day, and great to see everyone.

Final: Yankees 9 - Phillies 4

I can't wait for more...
