Winning Time: The Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox yesterday 4-0. Vidal Nuno continued his impressive spring with five shutout innings. No Yankee had more than one hit. CC Sabathia pitched in a minor-league game and gave up one run in six innings.

No Jeter too?: There is a chance that Derek Jeter opens the season on the DL. Would it be shocking? No, considering when he suffered his broken ankle and how long it takes to rehab. The Yankees are best preapred for this injury with having Eduardo Nunez to back him up. Maybe I overrate Nuni, however, I think if he’s probably the starting shortstop if he’s on about 10 other teams.

Welcome Back Wang?: Chien-Ming Wang may be back with the Yankees, maybe as early as today. Wang worked out for the Yankees yesterday and the team would like to sign him to a minor-league deal. Wang was 55-26 with the Yankees from 2005-09. That lisfranc injury derailed his career in 2008.

Opening Day Ceremonies: A classy move by the Yankees and the Red Sox organizations. They will be honoring the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting on opening day in a pregame ceremony. Each team will wear a ribbon on their uniforms. The Yankees will have 3,000 children, families and members of the Newtown community.

Gameday: If you need a college hoops break today, the Yanks will take on the Minnesota Twins at 7:05. The game will be on YES. No lineup for you since it’s a night game.
