  1. Martin leading off. I love spring training.

  2. just a thought…..if this becomes a nagging injury all year for Swisher that really won’t help his chances in free agency.

  3. Looking for Hughes to continue his improved play this afternoon. Although it’s probably going to be tough to keep up the pace he’s done so far. Would like to see continued improvement in his FB even just by a little bit, keep his walks down as well as his HR’s. Would also love to see him go 5 innings.

  4. After today probably just 2 more ST starts for most of the starters. May be 3rd start for a couple of them. But then the real games begin. It will be about time.

  5. The Tweet I just added to Delia’s post here is interesting because Pettitte might be back sooner then first thought.

  6. Is it just me or does Maxwell look pretty damn good this ST?

    • Maxwell looks Good. Like to see him on the bench. GoodThoughts, Frank B.

      • uyf and frank b, Maxwell is looking good he would make most teams, I just think the Yanks like to go with veterans. They don’t want to develope players in the majors. I think his best chance to stick is as a starter if Swisher is out. The Yanks could rotate him with Jones.

  7. Without going into each and every name. I’ve really been impressed by several of the young guys on the Yankees in the minors. I think the next year or 2 or certainly 3 we are going to see a changing of the guard with the Yankees. And in a very positive way.

    • uyf, I would try to fast track both Almonte and Williams, they could be platoon players for a few years until one becomes a star player.

  8. Just when you think Rapada has the inside track on the last spot on the roster. Cabral pitches a game like he did today (2 innings, 6K’s, 1 walk and no ER’s).
