Bits n bobs from Yankee Land

Mike Mussina looked sharp in giving up just one (albeit very loud) run against the Devil Rays in his last outing of the spring. Josh Phlelps took him very deep but the Moose shrugged it off and kept the D'Rays off the scoreboard through his seven innings of work. Scott Kazmir took the ball for the D'Rays and looked like the stud prospect everyone knew he was, Kazmir for Victor Zambrano...oh dear.

Kevin Brown however sucked against the Tigers today and cited a bad back for his early departure after laboring through three innings of work. He threw just 49 pitches as he tuned up for the opening game of the Bartimore series and gave up four runs, he looks like he'll be a real hit or miss guy this season.

Alax Graman cleared waivers and will be assigned back to AAA Columbus. The highly touted LHP looked woeful in Spring Training and seemed to do his very best to make sure he didn't interest any watching scouts. He needs to sort himself out if he wants a gig at the big league level.

Jason Giambi looks set to DH in the home opener against the Red Sox on Sunday night, meaning that Ruben Sierra will not match-up against David Wells. Tino Martinez will start at 1st and the batting order is believed to look like this:


In 48 hours Randy Johnson will be throwing down his first pitch to Johnny Damon. We are about to play ball.
