The plain and simple fact is that New York Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova was looking hot.
And NO…. I did not mean in a sexual way, but on the mound as Nova was throwing heat last night in his second outing of the spring.

While the odds on favorite to be named the Red Sox 5th starter to open the season is Felix Doubront (mostly due to his lack of options), Sox assistant GM Mike Hazen wants you to know that the race is "far from over".
Scott Lauber from the Herald has the info:
For now, though, Daniel Bard has the No. 4 starter job in a vice grip. His reliever-to-starter transition is...
The biggest rivalry in baseball and all of sports for that matter started up again last night with the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees playing each other in Tampa, FL. Oh, who am I kidding, it's only spring training. But I digress.

The Red Sox and the Yankees faced off for the first time in Spring Training and the Sox squeaked away with a win on a fielding error from the Yanks. It was a well pitched game from both sides.
