Spring Training Notes: 2/25/12

Nick Swisher during workouts

The Yankees had their first workouts today (by the way Nick Swisher, looking good) and the Yankees had some news go around. A-Rod had a press conference, Raul Ibanez talks about the Yankees so, let’s get to the notes for today!

Raul Ibanez said that he was thrilled to be a Yankee. He spoke to Bryan Hoch saying, “I was still mad about the 2009 World Series loss…up until about a week ago.”

Alex Rodriguez spoke to the press today and even said that he has a bad case of Lin-sanity. It’s so bad that he would offer a spot on his couch for Jeremy Lin if needed.

— And finally, (courtesy of Bryan Hoch) there are some Yankee Spring Training pictures, so take a look!

  1. Looks to ma like A-Rod is ready but, then again when isn’t he! Swisher and Cano look in good shape also. Mo is Mo, I hope one more time.
    Just thinking…Mo is an example of what a pitcher can do if he has a no stress, very repeatable motion and pinpoint command and control of his pitches. The closest I have ever seen was Satchel Page and Robin Roberts. Forget looking up Robin, his record wasn’t great but, he made the HOF, why did he make it and others with better records didn’t come close? Good question!
    He made it because he was another Mo, except he had more pitches. The story was, almost every hitter stepped into the box…no, not stepped, more like dug in…real good. The hitters knew no matter where the pitch started out, it was going to end up across the plate. Robin was afraid to hit anyone and the hitters picked up on it, also he played on some teams that would not be called big winners by anyone. FA had not arrived yet in those days.
    And old Satch, most of the major league pitchers (Dizzy Dean) and hitters that faced him in his younger years, (Babe Ruth was one) clame he was the Greatest Pitcher Ever!
    Talk about getting of topic and being long winded…. 🙂
