I wrote an article for the Bleacher/Report, and it's long. It's broken up, however, and it's pretty entertaining, so it shouldn't be too hard to read.
I'm going to post it first on the Bleacher/Report Sunday morning because they asked me to write something for them.
The article I wrote has nothing to do with the Yankees and their season. I mentioned one player from the Yankees.
On to today's news from Yankeeland:
The Yankees destroyed the Cubs by a score of 10-1. It was such an easy win you're probably thinking, let's play in the World Series already. Hold on, it's only spring. We have 162 games to go.
What's going on with all of these home runs the Yankees are hitting? Is it the new ball park? Are we playing at Coors field now?
Now to the good stuff.
* Mark Texeira
Not only did he hit one long home run, but Teixiera added another. He scored two times and drove in four runs. He finished the spring with a .433 batting average. This bothers me because these stats don't count.
* Derek Jeter
He hit a home run and drove in three. I like Jeter in the lead off spot. If Gardner starts to have a great year, however, I feel the Yankees should move Gardner into the lead-off spot.
* Cody Ransom
Scored twice and walked twice. The more you get on base, the more you score. That's why the Red Sox have been so successful. They find players who can get on base.
* Shelley Duncan
Hit a home run. Poor guy. What's he going to do? Be a career minor-leaguer?
* The Yankees' starting pitching and their bull pen
Andy Pettitte looked great. He gives up a lot of hits like the announcers said, but he always gets out of jams. I'm excited about Burnett, especially since I drafted him in all of my fantasy baseball drafts. He struck out six batters in four innings. Bruney got two batter outs. That was all they could ask from him.
Phil Coke has an awesome throwing motion, especially towards left-handed batters. The ball seems to start on the back of the batter's shoulder, then lands right in the middle of the catcher's glove.
Thank god Spring Training is over!
When the season starts, I'll be posting a player of the game when the Yankees win. When they lose, I'll post a disgraceful player of the game. Each week I'll count which player has the most and I'll accumulate it through out the season. Each Sunday you'll get the totals for the week. I'll spread articles about certain things through out the week.
I watched a little of the Mets play the Red Sox and Daisuke MatSueCocka is really fat! He looked like a fat slob!
Final note. Let's Go Yankees!
