Spring-training roster update

In response to several e-mails:

1B Juan Miranda and C Francisco Cervelli are on the 40-man roster and did not have to be invited to spring training.

Interesting that the Yankees will have two 19-year-olds (Austin Romine and Jose Tabata) and an 18-year-old (Jesus Montero) in camp. I’m looking forward to seeing them along with Dan McCutchen and Mark Melancon.

Guess J.B. Cox is still serving his time.


He may be a Cubs fan, but Dr. David Yung knows how to fix a sick blogger. The good doctor hooked me up with some codeine cough syrup and some other medicine. So far, so good. I’m still a mess, but less of a mess than I was.

A few teaspoons of delicious codeine somehow made today’s Congressional hearings almost amusing. Between naps, I didn’t hear much I didn’t know before. It was interesting to see Randy Levine of the Yankees sitting behind the Commish.

To me, the whole thing was grandstanding by the committee. Sorry, but I don’t rank the actions of Miggy Tejada among the pressing concerns of our nation and its lawmakers.

Yes, steroids are bad. We all get it.
