Britton to San Diego

The Padres signed former Yankees reliever, Chris Britton. He never really got a chance in New York unfortunately. Good luck to him in PETCO.

Britton/Christian

Chris Britton and Justin Christian were non-tendered today. In other words, they`re free agents. I`m dissapointed about Britton, I always liked him but neither are really a big deal.

Britton Recalled

Chris Britton has been recalled and he is on his way to Texas. This means that Joba is most likely headed to the DL. Thats not good.

Spring Recap #4

The Yankees lost to the Twins today, 7-5 at Legends/Steinbrenner Field. I was able to watch the 8th and 9th innings on ESPN. Here are some highlights.
Hitting:
Shelley Duncan hit a bomb in the bottom of the ninth. It really looks like he'll make the team. Derek Jeter was 2-2 with a walk. Robbie Cano was 3-3 with a double. Johnny Damon was 1-3 with a stolen base.
Pitching:
IPK threw two innings, giving up a solo homer to Delmon Young. Heath Phillips followed with a 1-2-3 inning striking out one. Joba proved he was human, giving up a two-run homer to the mighty Garret Jones. He struck out one and walked one. Jon Albaladejo pitched one and two-thirds innings, giving up a run on 4 hits, striking out two and walking none. I was able to watch Edwar Ramirez pitch, and he was awful. He didn't locate well, and his change didn't seem to move as much as last year. He gave up three earned runs on two hits and a walk. Chris Britton faced two batters, getting them both out. Ross Ohlendorf was pretty nasty. He hit 95 on the gun, with movement. he gave up one hit, but it was weakly hit, and Chris Woodward was out of position. Both of his outs were strikeouts.

One of the announcers, don't know who, said the Yankees won't make the playoffs because they don't have "that #1 starter." When will they learn?

In more important news, Bobby Murcer is okay.

Fan Sues Over Steroid Use

Heres the Story From The Press Association

A long-time baseball fan is suing the New York Yankees over some players' reported use of performance-enhancing drugs, saying he wants repayment for 221 US dollars (£112) in tickets and a public response from his once-beloved team.

"I look at it almost as consumer fraud," said Matthew Mitchell, 30, a Brooklyn resident who said he went to his first game at Yankee Stadium in 1984. "If I'm going to watch a baseball game, then I expect it to be the real thing."

Mr Mitchell wants to be reimbursed for tickets to five games between 2002 and 2007. They include Game 2 of the 2003 World Series, in which pitcher Andy Pettitte led the Yankees to a win.

Mr Mitchell said he filed the lawsuit chiefly because he wanted team representatives "to be forced to come down and answer my claim." A court date is set for February 20.

I was outraged when I saw this headline. Don't get me wrong, I hate steroids just as much as the FDA, and especially when Yankees are convicted, BUT THAT IS NO MEANS TO SUE YOUR FAVORITE TEAM OVER A COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS. I am sorry that you had to see me type angry like that. My advice to the Yankees is to put this guy in the back room and send in Shelley Duncan and Cris Britton.
