Here’s Dellin Betances pitching his heart out with a hope to get called up this year, or better yet, get a job in April. Only he can make that happen, I am rooting for this kid.
Great action shot of Derek Jeter and Ramiro Pena warming up in the warm sunshine. Yes, pena is still with the Yankees and is a soldier for them, doing whatever the Yankees need. He’s a decent backup but he’ll be competing against other guys like veteran Bill Hall and Eric Chavez. It’s not going to be easy.
Raul Ibanez looks confused, like he just realized he’s platooning with Andruw Jones for the first time or something. Yes Raul, it’s a platoon role with Jones. Just go out there and do what you do best at 39, have a decent system. In all seriousness, I expect Ibanez to hit well in Yankee stadium.
CC Monster throws in front of Yankee great and my childhood hero Ron Guidry. It really doesn’t get much better than this. Whenever you have guys like Guidry, Gossage and Berra at camp, you really start to realize just how special it is to be wearing pinstripes.
Here’s Phil Hughes proving to the world that he truly is the Yankees Golden Boy. No doubt he needs to get his velocity up and get back to 2010 form or we may be seeing Hughes in the Yankees pen or the minors for a bit. I believe in King Phil. Do you?
Nick Swisher is always smiling. If you read that LoHud article HERE, you know this guy just loves what he does for a living and feels blessed. You can’t help but want to root for this guy. I am hoping for a huge year for Swish as he enters the free agent market at the end of the season.
Joba the Hutt is working he way back and hopefully he’ll be in the pen by May. That’s me being hopeful. It’s tough to say, but Joba tweets often about how he’s making progress. Hopefully everything is working for him and he feels good.
