  1. I'm here and just want to say how impressed I am with Joba. He has played catch with a kid, traded hats with a little girl and has been talking/signing with fans for over an hour.

    The game is about to start and is still along the right field line.

  2. Nice to hear that about Joba or any player really. So am I correct in assuming that Cody Epply and Adam Warren will be making the trip with the big league club?

  3. Here in the hinterlands (Houston) I am not able to watch the game. But Hafner is scratched because of "general stiffness?" Sounds like something that can apply to a corpse. Hmmmmm, or is too many Viagras?

  4. I understand wanting a guy in the pen who could go multiple innings but I still dont think getting rid of Aardsma is that smart. Shawn Kelly can go multiple innings and so can Adam Warren. So essentially Cody Epply beat out David Aardsma? Really? I dont get it.

  5. Girardi said hes going to platoon Overbay with Youk at first and "Nixy" will get starts at third. Im sorry but Nixy isnt a good player. hes below average defensively at SS and 3rd and his offense is far below average. Hes a useful utility guy for a team that has established starters, like if the Yankees were actually healthy. But if hes going to see significant playing time then im not on board with that. He should be a fill in guy when someone needs a day off. I would much rather see Ronnier Mustelier be the 3rd base guy. He can play an average 3rd base and has hit over .320 in 2 years at AAA. 3rd is his natural position, who knows he might end up being a good player. Hes done everything he needs to at the lower levels. Give him a shot.
