Usually, I use this time to respond to the morning’s guest post. Today, though, I’m on my way to the office for a pre-Tampa meeting and a video chat with Sam.
Don’t forget, stop by this afternoon at 12:15 and shoot a question to Sam and I. We’ll be video chatting right here on the blog, trying to touch on all of the big Yankees topics heading into spring training.
Speaking of which, we have our first Yankee-in-great-shape story of the spring. Granted, we’ve already heard a little bit about Russell Martin showing up in better shape than he was in last spring, but Buster Olney reports that CC Sabathia has dropped a whopping 30 pounds in an effort to take care of that surgically repaired knee. That’s a big change for the big man. Good for him.
Don’t forget. 12:15. Video chat. See you then!
UPDATE, 11:24 a.m.: One more thing, Jon Morosi just reported that the Yankees have agreed to a minor league deal with Luis Ayala. Looks like more bullpen depth for Scranton.
