Pitching today: Joba Chamberlain followed by Kei Igawa, Christian Garcia, Phil Coke, Mike Dunn and Anthony Claggett.
Pitching today: Nick Masset.
Notes: The game is on YES. … If case you were keeping track, there are now 60 players in camp after six players were dropped yetserday. … The rotation for the rest of this week is Sabathia tomorrow, Wang on Friday, Hughes vs. the Pirates on Saturday and Burnett vs. the Astros on Saturday. … Back with more later.
UPDATE, 2:11 p.m.: Mike Mussina is here. He’s on vacation with his family.
UPDATE, 2:39 p.m.: Chien-Ming Wang threw his bullpen as scheduled. He feels fine now.
UPDATE, 3:00 p.m.: It was good to see the Moose. He’s here for a week with his wife and kids, spending time out of the Pennsylvania cold. He has no regrets whatsoever. “When I saw the weight room I knew I was retired,” he said.
You have to admire the guy for winning 20 games and walking away when he was still healthy and able to pitch. That’s pretty cool.
UPDATE, 7:08 p.m.: Brian Cashman said the answer for third base, “is here in camp.”
“No GMs have called me and I’ve called no GMs,” he said.
That probably means you can’t expect a new third baseman tomorrow. But at least that is what he is saying for now.
Not sure how many updates I’ll be doing tonight with the game on YES. Enjoy the musings of David Cone.
UPDATE, 7:23 p.m.: 8 pitches, 6 strikes. Crisis over for Joba.
UPDATE, 7:57 p.m.: Joba wasn’t great but he was certainly much better and he hit 96 on the gun. Major progress tonight.
Meanwhile, I know it’s spring training. But Brett Gardner is 13 of 26 counting the Team USA game.
All of the 0-3 service time players signed contracts, by the way.
