Remember that bid the Yankees made on Adonis Garcia yesterday? It was a big fat lie, that or a misunderstanding. It doesn’t surprise me, the team is much better suited to bid on Jorge Soler when the time comes.
The 10 team playoff is now official. As much as I dislike the MLB’s decision, they went a step further to piss off fans like me. The division series will now start at home for the team with the worse record. Assuming the same as last year, this means the Tigers would start the ALDS with two games at home, and the Yankees would finished with three games at home. This also means that the team with the better record will only play one home game, assuming a sweep.
Co-founder Larry Koestler wrote about the history of Yankee no-hitters at River Ave Blues. I’d like to boldly predict that Michael Pineda throws the next Yankee no-hitter.
And of course, today’s workouts. Notice there weren’t many? Thats because the team played a game against the South Florida Bulls. All the positional starters got at bats, excluding Cano and Martin. Almonte had a huge game with four RBI’s and a triple. (I know its early, but he’s my sleeper pick for spring training.) Eduardo Nunez and Ramiro Pena also tripled, finishing off the Bulls in an 11-0 victory.
We finally have televised baseball tomorrow! Catch the Yankees playing the Phillies (Nova v. Hamels) at 1:05 pm EST on the MLB Network or MLB.tv.
