New York Yankees Spring Training Open Thread 4/1

So what happened down at Yankees spring training camp today? Let's get caught back up!

CC Sabathia was officially named the team's 5th starter. His contract told us that.

Andrew Miller has been cleared to pitch through his wrist fracture in his non-throwing hand.

More to come after the Marlins and Yankees game that is set to kick off here in about 10 minutes.


  1. "Open competition" for the final rotation spot. Yeah right. Out of the three candidates, they gave it to worst performer. Mitchell got hurt. Okay, he's out. I'm not the hugest Nova fan, but he out pitched Sabathia in every measuring stat pitchers are judged on. Why didn't they just say "As long as CC can stand his fat ass on the mound and deliver the ball without falling over, he's our guy."

    1. If they were to put CC in the BP he would feel he was getting the same treatment as Posada got in his last year, maybe that would hurt his EGO and he would retire...maybe the sun won't rise to marrow!

    2. If you love the game, you do what you can do to contribute. Winning is what's important. You do whatever you're asked to contribute.

      If he sucks it, wouldn't you know in your heart you shouldn't be starting? I think so.

      Look at Jason Giambi. He ended up being a bench player, batting like 0.135, homeruns or nothin' lol


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
