Jeter discussed how he’s feeling coming off surgery, CC talked about how he’s preparing for Opening Day and Pettitte compared his ability as a pitcher now to when he was younger. Mark Teixeira and Brian Cashman also stopped by to chat.
Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was all smiles after throwing 18 pitches Thursday in his first simulated game since knee surgery last spring.
Yankees ace CC Sabathia has taken part in the latest internet sensation. The jovial left-hander tweeted on Tuesday, “You Ready? Me & friends made a Harlem Shake video. Give me your rating 1-10 & give it a RT if you like it #HarlemShake.”
Brian Roberts and Nick Markakis each had two hits and Brian Matusz pitched two scoreless innings as the Baltimore Orioles won their third straight game, 5-1, over the New York Yankees on Monday.
The 43-year-old Rivera threw 25 pitches Friday and said he was happy with the results. He expects to be ready when the Yankees open the regular season on April 1 against Boston.
Opening Day is 39 days away. That’s right. Thirty-nine days! And it wouldn’t feel like baseball season is just around the corner without starting the season off the right way…
Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes could be sidelined for two weeks because of a bulging disk that will be treated with anti-inflammatory medication.
“There’s always a little bit of concern, but it’s upper back by his shoulder blades, so we’ll see how he is in a couple of days,” manager Joe Girardi said. “You’re usually more concerned about the lower (back problem) lingering.”
Sabathia threw off a mound on Saturday for the first time since arthroscopic surgery Oct. 25 to remove a bone spur from his left elbow.
The Yankees are a good baseball team, just not a special one. For a fan base used to sitting atop a perch and starting down at the competition, it will likely take some getting used to over the next few years.
The Yankees are still a team with stars, and they will not go as far as the 23rd, 24th and 25th men on the roster take them. They will go as far as the stars take them.
Alex Rodriguez will not report to spring training with the Yankees’ position players, and will work on his rehabilitation from hip surgery in New York. Meanwhile, Joe Girardi believes the Yankees “could win 95 games and get to the World Series.”
The Bombers are open for business! Among the storylines: Who will nab the No. 5 spot in the rotation? Will Mariano Rivera be as dominant as ever? And what’s up at catcher?
“I would be surprised (if he didn’t return),” Sabathia said. “I know how hard he works and how much he cares about wanting to play and wanting to help the team. So I look for him to do everything he can to get back on the field and try to help us.’’
The Yankees are good, not great. And that’s probably not good enough, especially when you gauge how they gouge you at the turnstiles. $5 waters and $10 beers don’t taste too hot when the team gets cold and old.
