In case you didn’t get the point from Ed Price’s hourly updates, he fills us in with another one at 4 p.m.: The Yanks could release a statement tonight. And pigs could fly if they sprouted wings.
ESPN News Services reports that Buster Olney does not think Ron Guidry will be back as the Yanks’ pitching coach. Oleny’s speculation is based on this George King article, the recent availability of Leo Mazzone and the relationship between Dave Eiland and the Yankees rookie pitching trifecta.
According to reports from Tampa, something happened today. The Yankees offices received its delivery of water coolers. I kid you not. This is what the
stalkers reporters are sending our way. What a farce.
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.
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.
