Unbelievable as it might be, we’ve reached the final day of spring training. As long as the rain holds off, the Yankees will play one more exhibition game this afternoon and then they’ll catch a flight to New York.
Most of decisions have been made. Eduardo Nunez, Eric Chavez and Bartolo Colon are in. Jesus Montero, Sergio Mitre and Ramiro Pena are out.
All that’s left is to choose a temporary replacement for Pedro Feliciano, determine whether a backup catcher can be found on the open market and figure out whether Curtis Granderson will be healthy enough to open the season.
The games begin to count on Thursday.
The Yankees have a late report time this morning, so the lineup will probably come a little later than usual. The team will fly out of town tonight, I’ll catch a flight tomorrow morning and we’ll do a live chat when I get back to New York tomorrow afternoon.
Stop by tomorrow at 1 p.m. and we’ll chat for a while. Opening Day is right around the corner.
