Closing up shop in Winter Haven…
…quite literally. The clock is ticking on old Chain of Lakes Park, and let’s suffice it to say, it’s not among the Grapefruit League’s best work environments. This is, after all, the place where a giant snake appeared in the press box.
No snakes today, but also not much great pitching. Ian Kennedy has had better days, saying that he couldn’t really place his pitches and was forced to battle.
Hey, what do you call the Big Three of Kennedy, Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain? Got something better than "Generation Trey?" Check this contest out.
Johnny Damon, coming back from the flu, took an 0-for-4 collar, but Robinson Cano and Jason Giambi both continue to swing the bat well. They’re ready for March 31, there’s no doubt.
The Yankees lost 7-5 after Darrell Rasner served up a three-run homer to Andy Marte in the eighth inning. With Rasner and Jeff Karstens both having trouble late in camp, is the door opening for Kei Igawa to make the team? Stay tuned.
