Let’s do a chat before the Red Sox series.
Monday afternoon, starting at 1 p.m., I’ll be hosting a chat here at the LoHud Yankees Blog. I’ll be fresh off a red-eye flight out of Los Angeles, so there’s no way of knowing what kind of nonsense I’ll have to say. Stop by and hang out for a while.
Also, an interesting note from my friend Mark Feinsand: It appears that a stiff lower back isn’t the only reason Gary Sanchez is down in extended spring training. Feinsand reports that Sanchez was sent down because of “attitude problems” that he showed earlier this season. Stuff like this is not completely unheard of for teenage prospects, but it’s obviously not good news. Less than two weeks ago, Mark Newman said the Yankees were happy with Sanchez’s offensive progress and said Sanchez had been assigned to extended spring training to work through a back injury.
