I’m going to do something a little different today so instead of linking to articles for your lunchtime links, I’m going to post some Yankees related tweets from beat writers, columnists and fellow bloggers.
Some news on Francisco Cervelli:
Cervelli said its going to be about 5 weeks till he can do baseball activities. In 3 weeks he'll do hand strengthening exercises.

Well, that’s not good. This means more Chris Stewart in the lineup and since Joe Girardi is not too keen on Austin Romine, the Yankees will probably have to try and make a deal for another catcher. At least I hope they will…
This is actually a Mets tweet but still pretty funny:

Jay Horwitz is the Mets’ PR guy and he is a special kind of flower. The kind that tweets stuff that seems like it could be real but usually isn’t. A few weeks ago he tweeted that the Mets and Rockies were going to play a triple header because of the snow delays they were facing. I fell for it hook, line and sinker.
Next up, Craig Calcaterra of Hardball Talk, think you’re a dummy if you believe the Yankees are better off with Jayson Nix over Alex Rodriguez. (Okay, he didn’t say dummy, I did. But he is implying it.)
How one can say, with a straight face, that the Yankees are better off without A-Rod while Jayson Nix is starting …

And my tweet of the day:
klapisch leans back from his typewriter, stretches, and smiles at his Arod dartboard."You've been Klapped" he says with a twinkle in his eye

In case you missed it, Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record wrote something silly about A-Rod. Many people had varying reactions to it and this was my favorite one. I will not be linking the piece because it’s pretty awful but you can google it if you’d like.
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
