The well-traveled Bobby Abreu came to camp in much better shape this year.

A-Rod says Derek Jeter will win the MVP. This notebook also has word on a contemplative Johnny Damon, the running Yankees and a decorative Mike Mussina.

    Everyone’s in better shape this year: Abreu, Damon, Giambi, Joba, Bruney.

    does Igawa look the worse or the same as last year? with just about everyone supposedly looking to be in better shape, i’m thinking it may be the latter…

    If Arod is predicting an MVP for Jeter, isn’t he predicting a mediocre season for himself? Given the two players ceilings, even if Jeter has his best season ever, Arod would have to have an off year for Jeter to be better.

    I love spring training… everyone is in the best shape of their lives, birds are singing, children are laughing… hope springs eternal!!!

    Seriously, doesn’t it just get to be a bit much? :-)

    As for Abreu- spring training gets a little long towards the end, but players need it. He was almost completely inactive for quite a while last March, and it showed. With the benefit of hindsight, it probably would have been best to start him on the DL last season.

    So glad, these guys reported in good shape. Last year was brutal in the beginning because guys reported out of shape. Real professionals should never have let this happen. Glad, they got the new message. Being in shape can only help the team.
