Happy Tuesday, Yankee fans. Here’s a few links for you to read this afternoon.
- First up, a piece from Yankee Fans Unite on the top 40 Prospects for 2013.
- Next, Mariano Rivera proves, once again, that he is the best human ever and that everyone should love him.
- More from Mo, he has no plans to change his Spring Training routine.
- The folks at Pinstriped Bible are doing a “Know Your 40” series and today’s subject is the captain, Derek Jeter.
- Brian Cashman said that the Yankees are waiting until the players arrive to camp before deciding who will be the center fielder. There’s talk that Brett Gardner could be shifted to center with Curtis Granderson making the move to left.
We’re only a week away from the official start of Spring Training. So far, there have been reports of Michael Pineda and Derek Jeter engaging in baseball activities. Also, Ivan Nova is down in Tampa, Phil Hughes arrived this morning and I believe Joba Chamberlain also made his way south.
Okay, they were mostly tweets from the poor beat writers who are in Tampa but can’t get into the complex because it’s not officially open. It’s still news!
Anyway, I am really looking forward to the day – in a few short weeks – when we will be able to report about actual games being played. Until then, this will have to do.
