I like the format of your blogs: What went right, what went wrong, etc.


4th inning. Not one hit yet for the Yankees. Is the Houston pitcher that good? This Spring Training the Yankees offence has been sporadic and spasmodic at best. Houston is not a paticularly good team. They shouldn’t be giving the Yankees such a struggle. Hopefully they can get it going soon.
