The beat writers for every team just had lunch with respective managers (soup, chicken and pasta, some sort of chocolate dessert) at the Bellagio. Joe Girardi was a gracious host as we talked about different subjects.

The Yankees are obviously giddy about what they have accomplished. But they also need to fill those two other spots in the rotation.
