Wrapping up the day in Clearwater

Happy anniversary to Hideki Matsui, who belted a home run today. He still hasn’t collected on that marriage bet from Bobby Abreu and Derek Jeter.

That’s an up-to-date drawing of Mrs. Matsui over to the right.

Joe Girardi was pleased with Joba Chamberlain. Asked about Joba’s velocity, Girardi said it’s about what it was at this point last season and they would expect it to get better as he builds arm strength.

Joba has two more starts in spring training. Keep that in mind. And he did hit 94 today. It’s not like he’s Tim Wakefield.

Brian Bruney was encouraged and the coaches were pleased with what they saw from Jose Veras. The Yankees held the Phillies to six hits and struck out eight.
