"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The Hit Squad


So Zack Greinke went to the Brewers and the Yanks are still waiting to hear from Andy Pettitte…Grienke wasn’t a New York Guy

Things are slow for the Bombers as Christmas approaches. But that doesn’t mean the Yankee blogosphere is dormant–peep the latest from the fine folks at Replacement Level Yankees Weblog,  Pinstriped Bible, Was WatchingThe Captain’s Blog,  River Ave Blues, It’s About the Money, Stupid, Yankeeist, Zell’s Pinstriped Blog,No Maas, and of course the Lo-Hud Yankees Blog.

In the meantime, dig this real rap session on the craft of hitting featuring Don Mattingly, Wade Boggs and Ted Williams. Peter Gammons is the writer, SI is the mag–back from April, 1986.

I can't be the only one worried about some kind of awful, misguided Christmas surprise coming from the Yankees, right?

[1] On the heels of Javy Vazquez II, what would be more ill/logical than Carl Pavano II?

Maybe if instead of a dollar amount, his contract has a rubber-stamped entry that reads "PREPAID IN FULL."

And a special uniform stipulation: The rose goes in the front, big guy. On the outside.

[3] Oh, let's not go there. I'd prefer an Ivan Nova or Sergio Mitre experience to American Idle. Just on principle.

Blanket of snow on the field. time to settle in for a long winter's nap.

Merry Christmas all! When's pitchers and catchers?

[4] Tell me why not Brandon Webb... is he asking for too much? Too far to go with his injury? Out of that pool, it seems like he has the highest upside...

[5] 8 more weeks till pitchers and catchers!
