Morning Bits: State of the Yankees, Posada, Rivera

How Sweep It Is!!!!!  Things are looking up for the ball club as they have won 3 in a row.  Not all the wins have been convincing though and the starting pitching still is not in full form yet.   Today is an off day before the home opener.   Make sure you stop by later tonight as Delia will be hosting a Live Chat.

On to the links…..

– ESPN’s Andrew Marchand has the state of the Yankees.

– 100 Years ago the Yankee pinstripes were born.

Les Carpenter of Yahoo Sports writes that Mariano Rivera answers the call again for the Yankees.

Jorge Posada will be throwing out the first pitch on Friday for the home opener.

Mark Simon of ESPN Stats is at again this time taking a look at the road trip and the statistical mixed bag it was.

– For my prospect people Jose Campos was unhittable last night and has yet to give up an earned run this season.

– Trenton manager Tony Franklin earned his 1,000 win which is very impressive.

– The Charleston River Dogs rout Augusta 11-5 last night.

  1. Something that stuck out from Mark Simon’s article…..

    Teams are jamming Alex Rodriguez with pitches inside, at least until he proves that he can hit a ball over the fence against one this season.

    Rodriguez didn’t have an A-Rod type of first six games, hitting .174. The heat map atop this story shows the pitch locations for his 19 outs, 11 of which came on inside pitches.

  2. Good to see Damon finally find a team.
