Trying to figure out the WBC rosters

According to, Edwar Ramirez and Jose Veras are on the final roster of the Dominican Republic team in the WBC.

Note to the DR team: Edwar can’t throw because of a sore shoulder. I have no idea if Veras is actually on the team or not. The WBC is a bit haphazard.

Damaso Marte is on the DR roster, which I do believe is actually the case.

Joe Girardi isn’t too thrilled with the timing of the tournament. But he understands the desire to want to play. “If they had this when I was a player, I would have wanted to be there,” he said.


In response to many, many e-mails, the Yankees said that Old Timers’ Day will be July 19 against Detroit. That is a Sunday afternoon game.

I’m still trying to get the official word on the availability of beer in the bleachers.
