Does anyone really care about the final score of a Spring Training game? What’s important is that everyone who played in said Spring Training game made it out unscathed and so far, so good for Derek Jeter who made his debut this afternoon at George M. Steinbrenner field.

The Yankees dropped the game 8-2 to the Pirates thanks to another bullpen implosion but the most important news is that while Jeter went 0-2 for in the five innings he played, he ran to first base hard in the fourth inning and was fine.

David Phelps had a pretty good outing giving up one run and striking out four.

Here’s the box score.

In case you missed it earlier on IIATMS:

  • Michael wrote about the Yanks and DBacks possibly being trade partners.
  • Domenic, E.J. and yours truly, recorded our seventh episode of the It’s About The Yankees, Stupid podcast.
  • Tomorrow’s game will be not be televised but Saturday’s will be and it will feature Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda making their Spring debuts.

    Treat this as your open thread. Enjoy!
