robert G. I for one do NOT like what I’m seeing with this squad. Viewed the replay of the Phillies game today and saw Joba the Waste doing exactly the same DA*M thing he’s been doing for the past three years. ALWAYS pitching from behind, NEVER a first pitch strike, walking people and then getting popped for a run etc. This team will NOT get better until it unloads the salary of that loaf #13. This has the prospect of a 500 season and if that’s the case then start playing younger players and see IF they can cut it.


Nice start to pre season for the Yankees–worst in the league. 1-7 after today. Can’t beat teams like Houston or the Phillies? Sure it’s spring training etc.etc. but I don’t remember this bad of a start in recent years. Any fans getting a little worried about this team we have this year? I think we’re in trouble. I hope I’m wrong.


Bryan, Thanks for posting the game information so early this year!
