Spring Training Health Report: Everyone’s okay

2010 Draft: Paxton lands in Grand Prairie
Open Thread: The 2010 New York Yankees

The Yankees suffered a rash of minor injuries in the final week of camp, but they’ll have everyone available when the season begins tomorrow night. To put it succinctly, Jorge Posada‘s stiff neck is fine, Nick Johnson‘s bruised knee is better, Damaso Marte‘s shoulder isn’t cranky, and Al Aceves lower back is a-okay. Frankie Cervelli‘s sore hamstring is good to go as well, and he’ll be available off the bench. Thankfully everyone’s healthy, and the Yanks can start the season with everyone intact.

    thank god ,now we can start the season with 13 wins and 15 losses like the yankees always do

    • Zack

      and 0-3 against the Sox so we can see more “Sox in Yanks Head” stories

      • WIlliam

        On the contrary, at this point, I think it would be fun for the sox to sweep the yankees, after all, we could say “oh, we’re winless against the sox, what happened the last time that happened? refresh my memory?” It’s a win win. (Of course, I’de rather the yankees beat them, I’m just pointing out the sweet silver lining)

      In the words of Ted Bundy, let’s ki… Umm, never mind.

      Heh, I’m ready to annihilate the competition early and often this year. 100+ wins, here we come.
      Total domination.

      • WIlliam

        100+ wins? That was sooo 2009. I’m thinking 2003 Marlins as a jumping off point. 700 winning percentage, here we come.

        • radnom

          91 wins?
          Do you mean the 01 Mariners?

          • WIlliam

            Shit, that’s what I meant.

            • WIlliam

              Those teams with their names that start with Mar, they’re all so similar.

  • David in Cal

    IMHO this year’s team is better than last year’s, because NJ + Grandy > Matsui + Damon. Vazquez iS big addition. Hughes will be a better starter than Joba was. I expect the Yanks to begin the season 20 wins and 10 losses and never look back.

    • Rogue Trader

      Yup plus an extra month of A Rod, and hopefully a better Teix in april.

      119 Wins

      I will link back to this post in september.

        Yup plus an extra month of A Rod

        I think we forget to mention this because he did so well upon his return that it was like he was there the whole time. List of accomplishments for A-Rod in ’10:

        600 HRs
        1800 RBI
        Another 30/100 season
        100 WAR (CHONE)

        • WIlliam

          another 30/100 45/150 season.

          • http://theyankeeu.com Matt Imbrogno

            I like how you think.

      • Accent Shallow

        119 Wins

        I wish this would happen, but there’s no chance this happens.

        • pat

          IF you think about it, that’s only a 5 game regular season improvement from last year. No shitty CMW starts and Arod for a whole year could easily make up that difference.

      Hughes will be a better starter than Joba was

      Why do you think this? I’m not trying to sound hostile, so I’m sorry if it’s coming off that way, I’m just curious. Chamberlain has had more sustained success as an SP than Hughes has so I’m just interested in your thought process.

      • ROBTEN

        Hughes will be a better starter than Joba was.
