How much do these games mean?

  1. Agreed. They mean nothing and remind me of the years when George would blow a gasket over the Yankees' spring record. If these games meant anything than Derek Jeter is going to pound every ball into the ground at an infielder. Wait…

  2. I know, I know.

    And will have to keep repeating that mantra – since seeing that Phil threw 38 pitches without getting out of the 2nd inning – even tho its "not important," that is also what he was doing last year.

    Lord willing, he will improve. If not – you can be glad the Yankees "wasted" $5 mil on Freddy. (who also didn't look that good, but he NEVER looks good.)

  3. We can't look at these games as "games," but rather as practices–not only do the results not matter, but in some ways it's better to see a bunch of mistakes now, so we can know how to deal with them.
