Talkin’ a little baseball

And let’s do it today, because tomorrow is going to be all Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez, all the time …

– Francisco Cervelli was sent out of camp today with an upper respiratory ailment, the same one that bothered Christian Garcia and Brian Bruney earlier. Joe Girardi is trying to quarantine his clubhouse, sending him home after a doctor’s appointment today. Jason Johnson was excused from camp today with a personal issue.

– The Yankees are not expecting anyone to be late this spring with visa problems.

– Girardi said he is OK with keeping both Xavier Nady and Nick Swisher around: “I don’t think you can have too many players. You don’t know what’s going to happen in the next seven weeks, if we come out of Spring Training completely healthy. You can never have too many players.”

Like I said early if Arod smacks Pap repeatedly, no one in Yankees nation will care about roids.

I think I was wrong guys, El Duque must have teamed up with Clemens, Wells, Mussina and Pettitte in 02 and not part of the great rotation of 03 which I was comparing this rotation too. I think Pettitte will have a great year and I am behind him.

With the extra ST to accomodate the WBC, I wouln’t be surprised to see Manny sign as late as mid-March. He won’t need more than three weeks to be ready.

Matt,
Interesting! Well, if Manny only signs for one year, he will be a candidate for our DH in 2010!!!

I’d love to see Swisher back in the Bay in black and orange. Lord knows we got some minor league pitching to trade.

Matt,
Sabean has no interest now? It can’t be an age thing with Renteria and the “unit.”

REPEAT FROM PREVIOUS THREAD
PG,
Of course he would have to earn it. Cabrera could win the competition. But, I see no one else for lead off in 2010 without extending an aging player like Damon or going outside. We shall see, just my hopes!

Brian: I feel like Hank Aaron, the news media or whoever is behind the witch hunt with who did steroids and who did not should let it go, because like Hank said if they thought the record is tainted that can lead to a whole lot of other records being looked at. The biggest use of enhancements in baseball been around for generations, they were called bennies, blue bombs and etc. now known as meth. So I am like Hank,let it go.

Miguel Tejada has visa problems? Oh wait we didn’t trade for him.
The Yankees would be best served to keep both for a more important reason. Manny Ramirez not signing immediately makes him an immediate candidate for anyone that has an injury. Nick Swisher is a much cheaper alternative and would likely result in more compensation for his services than his current value.
