4/2 – Yankees vs. Orioles (with Posada update)
- This quick note to chip in – Jorge Posada said his stiff neck is feeling better, but obviously he’s not in the lineup this afternoon.
- The James P. Dawson Award, given annually to the most outstanding rookie in Yankees camp, will be presented this afternoon. It seems like Jon Weber – who coincidentally was called over from the Minor League complex today – should have a good shot.
- USF football coach Skip Holtz will throw out today’s ceremonial first pitch.
Pitching: Alfredo Simon RHP
Pitching: Andy Pettitte LHP
Also available: Damaso Marte, Boone Logan, Mariano Rivera, Grant Duff, Amaury Sanit, Josh Schmidt.
And now this from Manufacturers Hanover – one seat to my left, the Bergen Record‘s Pete Caldera has penned a little Twitter poetry: “‘Twas a month-and-a half; to fill out a staff; that merely required a 5th starter. So it’s adieu to Tampa. We’re breaking camp-a. And don’t be late for the charter.”
