EJ Fagan over at our old home has a great piece up on the beat writers’ overreactions to the non-news emanating from Tampa right now. His point – and it’s a good one – is that the Yankees are under no obligation to rush their decision simply to create news for writers searching for off-season, pre-free agency stories. Check it out.

I have no idea.

Hat tip to It’s a Fly World. This is the last Red Sox picture I’ll post today. I promise. Someone just tell the Yanks to hurry up and do something down in Tampa today…

AzFL Peoria (9-1 win over Mesa)
Brett Gardner: 1 for 4, 1 BB – 10 hits & 4 walks in only 6 games (.483 OBP)

HWB Honolulu (2-0 win over North Shore)
Austin Jackson: 0 for 1, 1 R, 3 BB, 1 SB - wow, a game like this was unthinkable for him a year ago
Bradley Suttle: 0 for 4, 1 K – hitting .086

Venezuela Winter League box scores haven’t been posted yet. I’ll try to get an update posted later today (assuming the box scores get posted at some point), but no promises.

VWL Update: (thanks to commentor Yanks26 for the heads up)
Justin Pope: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 0-3 GB/FB
Marcos Vechionacci: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 BB – both walks were intentional…fear the Vech (.455-.618-.818 in his homeland)
Edwar Gonzalez: 0 for 4, 1 K

If you’re bored at work, take a quick scroll through the rosters for some of the VWL teams, some of those names are big time blasts from the pasts.

Shorty McSlappy

Your wish is our command. Submitted for your approval, it’s Shorty McSlappy, the Red Sox second baseman. This photo comes to us courtesy of The Boston Globe. The Red Sox and their fans should never complain about A-Rod‘s 2004 ALCS play again.

    Dustin Pedroia just tried to slap the ball out of Victor Martinez’s hand as he went by on the first play of the game. I kid you not, rewind it on your DVR and check that shit out. It’s a good play though, because he’s a “gamer” and “gritty” and a “Red Sox” and “not A-Rod.”

    And for those of you who witnessed Kevin Youkilis reading the lineup, tell me he doesn’t look and sound like someone you’d meet online at 3am.
