The Yankees best hitter this spring has been a 32-year-old with no major league at-bats and very little chance of breaking camp with the team. Jon Weber has dedicated his life to baseball, and he’s still waiting to play on its biggest stage.

Alfredo Aceves is still trying to win a spot in the Yankees rotation, but his case took a step backward on Saturday when he was roughed up against the Astros. The notebook also has items on the upcoming rotation plans, Curtis Granderson’s wrist and┬áKevin Russo’s time at short.

    The rest of the story:

    “Girardi said he does not have a fifth starter in mind. He said the competition remains wide open among the five candidates. He will meet with his staff in the next few days to discuss and plan the next step.

    He still hopes to have a fifth starter decided by the end of next week.

    “We could talk for hours and we might still not come out and have the decision,” he said. “But obviously we’re getting to the point where we’re going to have to make one in the next week or so.”
    We want to see them pitch well,” Girardi said. “Make our decision harder.”
    Girardi once again said that recent outings will weigh more heavily than early spring starts, and that seems to bode well for both Hughes and Chamberlain, who pitched especially well in their most recent outings.”

    Great job Chad. I loved the story about Jon Weber. It reminded me of the movie “The Rookie”. It is refreshing to see a ball player playing for the love the game. He obviously does not play for the money.
