Yankees Off-Day Notes: Who does NOT make the roster, Pettitte for Game 2

Good evening everyone! It’s day 3 of the 3-day day off for the Yankees as they prepare to play the Baltimore Orioles. Today is the ALDS for the Tigers and the A’s while it’s the NLDS for the Reds and the Giants. Here are some off-day notes about the Yankees:

— The Yankees 25 man roster will be released tomorrow morning but for now, Joe Girardi has told us who will not make the roster. Here are some of players that haven’t made the roster.

Of course we will find out the rest tomorrow as the Yankees will look to defeat the Orioles and attempt to send them into the off-season.

Andy Pettitte will pitch Game 2 behind CC Sabathia, most likely because  Hiroki Kuroda has better numbers at home than on the road.

Now it’s time to vote on what will be the outcome for the 2012 ALDS series!!

  1. Andruw Jones is NOT on the roster. whew….thank God.

  2. Listening to A-Rod’s interview with Mike Francesca from yesterday. He made an incredibly solid point about Ichiro’s talent and value to the team resembling Johnny Damon’s during the 2009 Postseason.

    Like Damon, Ichiro is hitting in the 2 spot, rarely strikes out and can also hit the ball over the fence when needed. His speed is even better than Johnny’s at the same age, and we all remember how important Damon was on the base-paths especially in the World Series.

    Alex continued to talk about the similarities to the 2009 team, and though I don’t see too many besides Ichiro=Damon, he seems excited, prepped, and mentally ready for a hopefully productive playoffs.

    What can you do, it’s the night before the ALDS, how couldn’t I be pumped and optimistic!!
