Yankees Spring Training Open Thread 3/10

So what happened down in Yankees spring training camp today? Let's catch up!

The New York Yankees scrapped the idea of playing Starlin Castro at third base this spring. Could that possibly be because Robert Refsnyder did so well there? Yes, I believe it was. The team said they wanted Castro to feel comfortable at second base. Works for me.

The Yankees added 13 players to spring training camp including Tyler Austin, Jose Rosario, Matt Tracy, Miguel Andujar, Vince Conde, Chris Gittens, Cito Culver, Conor Mullee, Mark Payton, Juan Silva, Abi Avelino, Dan Fiorito and Michael O'Neill. This was for the split squad games today.

Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits while Starlin Castro had three for the Yankees against the Orioles. Castro also had three RBI and raised his spring averahe to .429. Meanwhile at home against the Blue Jays the pitching allowed 11 runs with Diego Moreno taking the loss for New York. The Yankees used eight pitchers including all three of their three headed monster in the bullpen and none of them looked especially sharp.

The Yankees ties the Baltimore Orioles 4-4 and lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 11-4.

Oh and we're still free to read and we always will be. Just saying.

  1. lol I love the zing at the end. It's funny though- I never sensed passion in the writing, which really pissed me off. Still was a daily reader.
