And now for some very important Spring Training news

As you know, Yankee uniform numbers are very serious business and that certain numbers are treasured by fans. So when the news from camp is all about who’s wearing what number, I feel we should report it…

Oh, I’m joking, it’s not that important but since we’re lacking any serious news – for now – I figured I’d let everyone know what’s happening down in Tampa.

This information is from Mark Feinsand of the Daily News and his tweets:

I know, I forgot that the Yankees had some of these guys too.

And for some locker news, again from Mr. Feinsand:

For right now, the news is mostly about things like this or it’s about CC Sabathia‘s weight loss. He told reporters he’s down to 290 lb. and that he cut Capn Crunch from his diet, again. Also, Austin Romine let everyone know that his back is feeling “absolutely fantastic,” and that he would like to win the starting catching job and avoid going back down to Triple A.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the day. We’ll be manning the Twitters and relaying as much news to you as humanly possible.

  1. The only # that made me flinch was #54. That's Goose's. Even if he's become crusty and cranky (crustier and crankier?) regarding players today, I still hold that number a bit sacred.

    IF Romine's back is indeed feeling good and he has no issues during ST I'm all for letting him prove himself with the big league club when they head north in April. It's not like either Stewart or Cervelli are head and shoulders locks for the position.

    I was hoping they'd give someone 21, 51 and/or 6 to really piss people off. Kidding!

      Wasn't it Hawkins who came into Yankee stadium with 21 on his back and immediately got booed?

    Mike Mussina is one of my all-time favorite players. I'm bummed someone is taking his number. I'm glad it went unused for 4 years.

      Moose was the best. I loved him.
