Pitchers and catchers are like, forty hours away. How awesome is that?
Here’s a recap of today’s action from camp:
- Bryan Hoch spoke to Joba Chamberlain, who said the Yanks “are always the team to beat.” Good boy. Kat O’Brien has some more from Joba, and Hoch also noted that Jon Albaladejo looks to have lost about fifteen pounds over the winter.
- Mike Ashmore caught up with pitcher Eric Hacker, who’ll be competing for a Triple-A Scranton rotation spot this spring.
- Chad Jennings notes that JB Cox, George Kontos and Kanekoa Texeira have been invited to Spring Training. You may remember that they weren’t on the original list of invitees. Jennings also notes that Eric Duncan has been trying out the outfield.
- PeteAbe says that A-Rod is expected to be in camp next week, so hopefully all of this will be behind us in seven or eight days. Pete also says that Jorge Posada was making throws out of the crouch, and that Nick Swisher will wear number 33 with Brian Bruney switching to 38.
Here’s your open thread for the night. The Isles are taking on the Devils in Newark, the Rangers are taking on the Fightin’ Ovechins at home, and the Knicks are out playing that other LA team. Talk about whatever your heart desire, just be nice.
