    Pick up the phone and call Miami to establish the asking price for Jose Fernandez. Then agree to it.

    Oh well. The defending world champions snatched him up.

    Looking forward to stoking the Spring Training fires soon.

    Greg Bird has to have surgery on his shoulder and will miss the whole season. Well that sucks.

    We'll see. They say it's a torn labrum. I had that done 15 years ago and had other damage repaired on both shoulders since. The labrum was the least invasive of them all with the shortest rehab. I'm hardly a pro athlete, but holding him out for the entire season seems to be an overreaction. He'll be fine.

    Fans: "Hey Mas...you going to be good on Opening Day?"

    Tanaka: "I dunno. Maybe. Maybe not. Who knows?"

    Chapman suspended.
    Miller with chip fracture in non-throwing hand. May miss time.

    Pineda looked awful today. Nice team:( and no one can hit. Never seen so many .220 hitters in a line up.

    Nice job Brian.

    Let's just lose 5 of his 6 starts before they realize Nova was the guy. CC did a lot for the Yanks, they have the money though to say "it's time"

    Well I for one had Starling going .300 30 100, didn't you?
    Seriously, 88/89 wins? This was nice, but it won't last. Those dog days of May and the team's eligibility for Social Security will combine for a return to earth.

    Age will catch up but Castro is a breath of fresh air for now. Hope he has a career year (s)

    If I get the MLB TV Premium package will I get the Yanks? I have Comcast and don't.

    Will MLB TV black out the Yanks?

    I did get to watch them on MLB tonight don't get to often, thank God. Wow don't know where to start. First I will give kudo's to the Sox for allowing us with this awful ells bury contract wow does he blow. 2nd having him and Gardner at the top of the lineup, well it's awful. Imagine being Brett playing baseball this long and not knowing how to bunt with that speed? I mean he's an alright OFer but let's be honest Yankee fans, minus that one month and a half a year where he hits .395 with 10 fingers and 30 RBI he's putrid. Batting these 2 next to each other is like playing Nolan and Brimah together to jump start *****'n offense.

    And Chase Headley - never a fan but when you're a crappy hitter like he is and they play you to pull can you please become a baseball player and hit a groundball to the left side just once?

    The pitching - well let me just end with this - best bullpen for 7-8-9 ever potentially and yet they may never get there.

    Cashman - Syanara!

    Let's keep throwing Headley out there when the guy who also plays 2rd Torryes is 6 for 9? I mean I get it, it's early, but they have old crappy hitters and they kept them. They even resigned a couple like Headley when there were people available. Cashman got his 100MPH reliever and forgot about the lineup and the staff.

    Is it time for spring practice for mens hoop yet?
