Notes:

Mussina was very shaky in his four innings of work, throwing way too many balls.

Posada was behind the plate today for the first time since his practice accident.

The Yanks leave Florida and go to Arizona to battle the Diamondbacks for their final two spring training games.

Yankee Spring Training Record: 14 wins, 16 losses

  • Hey mvb, I have a new post you may be interested in. And thanks for all the tips, they are included in the post. And, do you think the Yanks' pitching will be their downfall? God bless.

  • Well, it depends on how healthy the pitchers stay. See last year, the Yankees problem was they ran out of pitchers. They starting last year with only the minimum five starting pitchers. This year they have 7 ( or 8 if you count Sturze), and I think if one pitcher stumbles, another will take his place. I still don't think the Yankees pitching is that great. In fact, Boston probably has better starting pitching (since they added Beckett) but we'll see...

  • Sabathia wins the AL Cy Young??? Wow! :) I don't know if he's gonna be better then Kevin Millwood, Holliday, Schilling, Beckett, Santana, Rogers, Johnson, Colon, Buerle, and Garcia.... :)

    But I totally agree that Kazmir will be the breakout player of the year....

  • Hey, do you know how to get more publicity for a blog? I wish I could get a lot of people to visit the posts I write that take a bunch of time, you know, so it's worthwhile to right lots.

  • I don't think Sabathia will get the Cy, but Pedro Martinez, Colon, Beckett, and a few more have a serious chance.
