Greetings from Gate E-7

Greetings from the Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson International Airport here in Dallas. We’re waiting on a flight to Cleveland.

Not much to report since last night. The Yankees have today off and most of the players scattered to their homes. But several of the fellas will be in Cleveland tonight to see the Cavaliers play the Magic. CC Sabathia, Nick Swisher, Phil Hughes and probably a few others will be in the house to witness LeBron.

Fortunately, a buddy of mine was able to score two seats. It should be a good time, or at least as good a time as you can have in Cleveland.

Meanwhile, while I appreciate the e-mails, the idea that Chien-Ming Wang would be a good set-up man makes little sense. He pitches to contact and gives up a lot of groundballs. That’s not a good recipe for late-inning success in close games. He also needs a fairly lengthy amount of time to warm and is coming off a foot injury.

It’s May 28, let the season play out. The Yankees will need a starter soon enough and when they do, Wang will be ready. If they do not, that would mean they have one heck of a team. There is no such thing as having too many good starters.

Check the blog for some posts later on today and there will be a live video chat tomorrow at 11 a.m.
