Putting aside the matter of Boston’s 7-3 defeat of the host Yankees tonight — a contest that featured Jason Bay being plunked by NY SP Joba Chamberlain (above)  after hitting a 3-run HR in the first inning  — let’s instead consider the respective clubs’ rehabbing superstars.

While P Daisuske Matsuzaka hurled 2.2 innings in Pawtucket’s 4-0 victory over Toldeo, Alex Rodriguez hit a pair of home runs during an extended spring training game.  Clearly, his return cannot come soon enough for his loyal fans in the Bronx, one of whom is peddling the above t-shirt for a mere $10, just a a few away from the venerable Stan’s Sports World.
