Spring Training Notes: 2/21/12

David Robertson signing autographs

Day 3 of Spring Training has come and gone and the highlight of the day was David Robertson signing autographs for little kids! Okay, there was other news that happened today but David Robertson giving autographs to kids? That’s adorable! Okay, onto the other news of the day.

Speaking of David Robertson, he had a lot to say about the Mariano Rivera situation. He spoke to Jack Curry this morning but doesn’t think that Mariano will leave just like that. “I’ll believe it when I see it.  When you talk about replacing Mariano Rivera, I don’t think that can be done. Like I said, I’ll believe it when I see it. You never know. He could Brett Farve us.”

Raul Ibanez has officially joined the Yankees on a 1 year, $1.1 Million contract. He will wear the number Joe Girardi wore in 2009; #27.

— Andruw Jones showed up to camp today and took batting practice. Nice to see him show up.

— The Yankees did suffer a downfall today when George Kontos was the first Yankee to suffer an injury; an oblique strain. Girardi mentioned that he will be out for a couple of weeks.

— The Yankees are preparing for the return of Eric Chavez just in case he re-signs and just in case they left a locker empty next to Nick Swisher.

Kevin Long mentioned that Raul Ibanez is a perfect fit for the Yankees lineup.

  1. I said it this morning and I will say it again. Comes a time when a player hangs it up and Mo walking away is sad for the most part. But think of the cost it saves the Yankees. Mariano makes 15 mils this year. If you give that spot to D-Rob next year who will maybe make 2 million. that’s 13 Million saved that could go to another player.

  2. Watching Yankees baseball daily. they just did an interview with Martin he lost 13lbs from last season.
