First Game of the Season

An intrasquad matchup between the Yogis (the A team, the major leaguers) and the Reggies (the B team, the minor league prospects). Kei Igawa started and pitched 2 scoreless innings, giving up one infield hit. Jeff Karstens started for the Reggies and also pitched 2 scoreless innings.
By the way, I love Iggy's pitch-face.

From MLB.com -

Torre said Jackson's starting pitcher, Jeff Karstens, stood out to him, as well as Berra's second hurler, Steven Jackson.

"I just like his arm," Torre said of Jackson, who was acquired in January's Randy Johnson trade. "It looks like he's really loose and the ball comes out of his hand fairly easily."

Guys flying under the ST media radar:

Hilarious article tearing the NY Times' Murray Chass a new asshole.
