The season will kick off in Japan!

Because this is MLB and everything is dictated by money, both games will count as Devil Rays home dates. After the series, the Rays and Yankees won't play again until April 6, allowing the No. 1 and No. 2 starters for each team to pitch twice in the first four games of the season. The Rays likely will go with Jeremi Gonzalez and Victor Zambrano twice before using any of their other starters. The Yankees could do the same with Mike Mussina and Javier Vazquez. While Kevin Brown might actually be the team's best pitcher, holding him back until the fifth game of the season would make sense.

that dont seem fair to the Drays that thats considered home to them, theres more yankee fans in Jap than Dray fans. but i guess if your the drays it dont really matter where u play does it?
