Thursday at noon, Sam and I will be doing another video chat here at the LoHud Yankees Blog. Feel free to swing by to ask some questions or throw out some theories. There should be plenty to talk about.
• Curtis Granderson is in center field. Andy Pettitte is in the rotation. Hideki Matsui is in Los Angeles.
• Are the Yankees really going to carry a Rule 5 pick on their roster?
• Does the designated hitter depth chart really have Juan Miranda at the top?
• With John Lackey off the market, is there still an impact starter available for the Yankees?
• Where is Johnny Damon going to open the season?
• How much better are the Red Sox with Lackey and Mike Cameron?
• Did the Yankees miss out on Roy Halladay?
• How many West Wing references can Sam and I make in the course of a single live chat?
UPDATE, 12:28 p.m.: Looks like we’ll be chatting not long after Curtis Granderson is officially introduced at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees have announced that Granderson will be introduced during a stadium press conference at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
Also, and I’m sure I’ll be blogging more about this later this afternoon, Baseball America has announced its top 10 Yankees prospects. No surprise, Jesus Montero ranks No. 1. Also no surprise, two exciting young arms — Manny Banuelos and Arodys Vizcaino — have moved into the top 10. Half of the top eight are catchers. You can go to the Baseball America site for a Yankees chat at 3.
