Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here

Posted By Alex Belth On February 25, 2004 @ 1:25 pm In Bronx Banter | Comments Disabled

Pedro Martinez and Nomar Garciaparra [1] are at Red Sox camp and are in the papers today. Martinez is sporting an (unintentionally) amusing hair style which looks like it requires a steady diet of activator–Cookie Head Jenkins [2], eat your heart out. Prince Pedro was his usual, uncompromising self [3], while Garciaparra [4] admits that the Alex Rodriguez trade talk over the winter was troubling [5].

Meanwhile, at Yankee camp, a jolly George Steinbrenner [6] respects the Red Sox team, but can’t seem to get Theo Epstein’s name right:

“I think they’ve got a great lineup,” he said. “I think Esposito has done a great job for them, like Cashman has done a great job for us. I think they have more stability in their pitching staff. I think we have a few question marks.”

The tweaking continues. As does Alex Rodriguez’s [7] apprenticeship at third base. Fortunately, Rodriguez has good teachers in Graig Nettles, Luis Sojo [8] and Willie Randolph.

Wrapping up, the Yankees have finally signed Travis Lee [9], and in light of Jon Lieber’s [10] aching groin, may be looking for an extra starting pitcher. In addition, Joe Torre [11] and Mariano Rivera [12] ponder their future in pinstripes.
