That would be today the Yankees are off and all is quiet as I’m sure they are all getting rested up for the long season ahead of them. I want to point out a couple of great articles to read one is over on Pete Abraham’s Lohud blog where he compares using Joba in the pen to using Albert Pujols as a pinch hitter. That is so true. Another is over on Bronx Baseball Daily where he talks about the fact that Melky stinks and he should catch a boat back to the Dominican if he gets much worse, To which I commented if his OBP gets any lower he should swim.
