The Yankees acquired Nick Swisher from the White Sox. At the moment, and probably moving forward, he’s their first baseman.
Free agency started today and Joe Girardi talked about some of the pitchers available.
Just FYI: Many people are commenting or e-mailing that they believe the Yankees are still going after Mark Teixeira despite getting Swisher. Sorry to be realistic, but Yankees were never going to spend every dollar coming off the books. They’re going to invest their cash in starting pitchers. They want CC Sabathia to be one of them and there is no chance they’re adding two $100 million + deals. Some people need to adjust their expectations.
Mike Dougherty, who covers the Giants and The Journal News and LoHud.com, will have a live video chat today at noon. Go to our Giants Mogulus channel to check it out and talk some Giants football.
I’m heading down to the Bronx to get a look at the new Stadium. Check back later for some photos and a report.
