Kangaroo court is in session

The Yankees had their first kangaroo court session of the year yesterday, with the Hon. Mariano Rivera presiding. It took about an hour for the players to get through the list of offenses which have been compiled over the first three months-plus of the season. Most of them are silly ways for teammates to write each other up, and many never see the light of day to the public.

“What happens in kangaroo court, stays in kangaroo court,” Mark Teixeira said.
Not exactly. Phil Hughes opened the window a little bit, revealing that Tony Pena had been hit with a fine for his duck-and-cover act on May 4, when Francisco Cervelli tumbled into the dugout in pursuit of a foul ball. Typically, players and coaches will help prop the player up to avoid injury – Pena offered absolutely no help in bracing Cervelli. Finally, justice caught up to him. 
Hughes said he didn’t escape unscathed. He was hit with a fine for writing up double offenses on Colin Curtis, who had tried to mail a players’ All-Star ballot with no address and no postage when the Yankees were in Los Angeles last month. Curtis wasn’t exonerated, so there were no winners in that one. 
“We didn’t have all that many,” he said. “They were just really drawn out. It took forever.”

Hi, Just back from Alaska, Yankees are 3 games ahead. Pitching has been great allowing only 6 runs in the last 5 games, Hard to do any better.. Now that Cano and Jeter have fallen off Tex and Arod are starting to come around . Now if we can put it all together it will be hard to keep up with us. Lee is gone, maybe Cash will try again in free agency. Who’s next on the radar? Is it a utility man? and/or another bat in the OF?

Glad to see Swish an All Star, he deserved it.. Looking at the schedule I see 5 games left w/Texas, 2 in Aug. & 3 in Sept. all away, is that right?? May have to face Lee twice! .. C’mon Javy pitch a good game tonight…. Has AJ turned the corner? I hope so. Jays beat BoSox 9-5… We need Grandy to start hitting… Yes, we need a better hitting utility IFer.. Also replace Thames…
“GO YANKEES!”
