According to Pete Caldera of The Record, Alex Rodriguez told the Yankees PR director he would hit a home run in his second at bat.
[W]ord from Yankees P.R. man Jason Zillo that Alex Rodriguez called his home run in the dugout. During batting practice, A-Rod told Zillo that he’d hit one during his [...]
Here’s the rotation with each pitcher’s average FB velocity (2008):
CC Sabathia — 93.7 mph
Chien-Ming Wang — 91.8 mph
A.J. Burnett – 94.3 mph
Andy Pettitte — 88.5 mph
Joba Chamberlain — 95.0 mph

Joe Girardi revealed his rotation today, stating that it would go Sabathia, Wang, Burnett, Pettitte, and Chamberlain. This seems like the right move, as he alternates his power type guys with his guys that depend more on breaking stuff, thereby giving teams different looks in a three game series no matter how the pitching [...]

1. Boston Red Sox—Oddly, I like their moves more than the Yankees. Penny and Smoltz could easily win more games than Sabathia and Burnett.
2. Tampa Bay Rays—I smell a letdown. But not a huge one.
3. New York Yankees—They’re becoming the [...]
