News and Notes

  • The Yankees and Padres are bidding for the Mexican pitcher, Walter Silva.  
  • Melky will not take part in the World Baseball Classic.
  • Hank the Tank fires back full force at John Henry's salary cap whining. Hank had this to say:
    “Along with a few other teams, we’re basically baseball’s stimulus package,” he said. “As long as we’re..giving all this money to other teams in revenue sharing, a staggering amount, we should be able to spend on salaries what we want to. Because of revenue sharing and because of the popularity nationwide, the Yankees are critical to baseball.”
  • A-Rod talks a little bit about something besides steroids.
  • Pete Abraham has some great spring training coverage from toady. Tino and Bernie were in camp!
  • The Head Stein made a rare appearance at camp today, meeting with some of the players and coaches. 
  • Meet A-Rod's cousin's trainer.

    Joba

    Pete Abe talked to Joe Girardi and he hinted that Joba may be starting the year in the rotation. They would take some creativity to keep him under his innings limit. However, I think this would be a great thing for the Yankees to do. The rotation is extremely questionable. I`d be shocked if Sabathia ended up a Yankee and I`d be surprised if Mussina returns.
