Heading to the Fort

Day 3 in Ft. Myers

-The big news around Ft. Myers today is the big showdown tonight in Tampa as the Red Sox take on the Yankees.  It’s hard to believe how much publicity and media attention a pre-season game between these two teams receives.

-Yesterday the Red Sox hit four straight home runs against former Boston reliever Brandon Lyon..Mike James, T.J. Large and Jose Vaquedano made relief appearances for Boston.

-A Papelbon pitched for Portland in yesterday’s exhibition game against New Britain.  Up close, it’s very fun to watch a submarine style pitcher.  Papelbon has the opposite repituar of his older brother.

According to Boston.com, Jon Lester is scheduled to pitch at a minor league game this afternoon in Ft. Myers…I’ll keep you posted throughout the day.
