A Good Omen from A-Rod and a Strong Message for the Melk Man
Wednesday, February 25, 2009
Ladies and gentledudes, baseball is finally here!!!

The Yanks kicked off the 2009 pre-season with a game against the Jays today, and they started things off with style with a 6-1 win. 18 guys combined for 11 hits, and both Brett Gardner and A-Rod hit homers in their respective first at-bats. The Ro(i)dster really soothed my worried soul today by proving he can set aside all the dramz and focus in on the game despite the awkward cloud of tsk-tsking that follows him everywhere he goes (although I must offer a pro-tip to my dear A-Rod: once you point your finger at someone as your drug-smuggling juice provider, you might want to avoid being seen in public with him for at least a couple weeks). Let's hope that emotional strength stays with him once he has to face the real world in New York.

As for Gardner, his home run made it perfectly clear that he has every intention of earning himself that centerfield gig. Pack your bags, Melky...

Up next? Hughsie is starting tomorrow. I'm giddy with nerves. Can you believe I'm still holding out a smidgen of hope for the kid?

    Im hoping Brett keeps it up and wins the spot over Melky. I really dont think he's a long term solution for the Yanks but he's a much better option than the Melkman. Also dont give up on Hughes the kid is only 22!

    I'm for Brett too. I like Melky but he's not a superstar. I don't think Brett is either but I think he'll be more consistent.

    Hughes should be in AAA right now...It's obvious he's not ready for the big leagues.

    Take Clay Bucholtz on the Red Sox he showed signs but began to suck it up last year and they demoted him.

    What the Yankees should do is try and get Ben Sheets at a low price and insert him in your rotation. Forget about injury issues money isn't a factor right?

    By the way Im a Red Sox fan!

    I think Hughes will be a top half rotation guy when it's all said and done. I think he'll show enough this year to keep the optimism alive.
