I was up until 7:00 watching and live-bloggin
' the Red Sox-A's game, and the YC is a sleepy girl. Nevertheless, I am dedicated to my bloggity and must persevere with our regularly scheduled Top Ten Tuesday.Top Ten YCPOSTTF
(Yankees Chick Players of Spring Training Thus Far... get with the program munecas)
10) Kei Igawa
. Yeah, you read that right. I still think the Yanks should cut their losses and cut him from the team, but at least he hasn't humiliated himself this spring. He's made four appearances (six innings) and given up seven hits and three earned runs.
. Yes, you read that right as well. He was going to be on the roster no matter how pathetic he was this spring, so the fact that he's done well is just a nice little surprise. 2.25 ERA 7 appearances.
8) Scott Paterson
. He's never pitched above AA level, but he's vying for one of the open spots
on the roster and making a case for himself - no earned runs in six innings.
7) Bobby Abreu
. He's reminding us why the Yanks exercised his option by hitting .405 this spring.
6) Shelley the Spirit Coordinator
. Let's chalk the stupid groin slide up to a little over-excitedness/forgotten Ritilin dose and focus on the .390 average and .419 OBP.
. When the Yanks made him off-limits during the Santanamania trade talks we saw just how much the Yanks valued him; this spring anyone that wasn't convinced of his projected value should be by now. In 22.2 innings he's given up just 4 earned runs.
4) Jason Giambi
. .417, 3 dubs, 3 homers and 8 RBI. Primed for a contract year!
. Still no signs that the off-season excitement has affected his delicate psyche. In 34 at-bats he's amassed a .434 average with an .853 slugging percentage.
That is very good, in case you were unaware.
2) Robby Cano
. He was three for four today and such performances have become the norm this spring. He's hitting .464 now with 5 doubles, 2 homers and 19 RBI. I'm smelling a batting title...
