…the Yankees beat writers are heading down to Tampa this week. I guess this means we’re really, truly going to have baseball. Seems kind of incredible, doesn’t it? I was starting to think the off-season would last forever, but by the end of the week it’ll officially be over. We’ll get reports about which players have arrived, who’s working out, who’s looking good, who’s saying what. Very excited.
So before we bring the Winter of Our Discontent to a close, I’m asking everyone for the highlights and low lights of this off-season. What stands out for you?
- Cliff Lee not becoming a Yankee?
- Jeter and the Yankees getting into a spat?
- Colon and Garcia joining the team?
- Andy Pettitte bidding us farewell?
- Robinson Cano hiring Scott Boras?
I guess these would all qualify as low lights. Were there any highlights? If there were, I’m drawing a complete blank.
Well, except for Mo signing a new two-year contract. That’s a big-time highlight.
