Jennings takes stock

Believe it or not, the Spring Training is nearing it’s halfway mark, and Chad Jennings took it as an opportunity to take stock in what’s gone on so far. The rotation and infield have basically been set since December, but the bullpen, outfield and bench – as well as just about the entire Triple-A Scranton roster – still have some unanswered questions. I’ll tell you what, Brett Tomko is making one helluva case to win that long man job, especially after tonight’s effort. Anyway, make sure you give it a look, as usual Chad is spot on.

      23 days, 16 hours.

        That’s not encouraging Mike Pop.

    23 days for Cano to heal and Alex to get closer. The Yankees need the extra time.

          I thought the “Retire 21″ was going to be for Paul O’Neill. I’m so happy it’s not.

    (Igawa)

      HA!

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      Say what you want about Igawa, but he looked good last night. It looks like he has smoothed out his delivery and is keeping his fastball down.

    Oh, so like Brett Tomko at age (what?) 37 is suddenly going to become something more than the sub-medicroty he’s mostly been? And Igawa is about to turn into Dice-K? Why do these guys even get chances when there are so many good arms around. And here’s a vote for a retun to split-squad games. Lots of fun, great box score fodder and more chances to see the kids.
