Sabathia expects normal spring

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Feb 12, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

CC Sabathia said he expects to throw his first bullpen on Thursday. He has been playing catch for a while and said the elbow feels fine; he can feel the improved range of motion when he plays catch. Sabathia never throws off a mound before spring training, so he is more or less on a normal offseason schedule despite the offseason surgery.

    Things I’m excited about ^^^^

    Most baseball writers now think Arod is a liar.
    This is just miserably wrong.

    Put Austin Romine in the “came to camp in better shape” group. Said he lost about 13 pounds, back feels good, sees an opportunity. #yankees

    Chad is dancing around the phrase…

    A-Rod IS a liar. He’s cheated on his wife, and he’s lied about his past steroid use.

    lol at Sourshoes calling into Hot stove while John was on the line

    is there any evidence to the contrary?

  8. DONNYBROOK February 12th, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I agree on A-Rod. The guy has a bona-fide track record of deceit. Some of us have strung along with him, as everyone makes mistakes and deserves 2nd or 3rd chances, but this Miami Mess is the straw. I cringe just thinking about him taking the field in pinstripes somewhere down-the-road.

    ****11) Radio silence on Montero, Arod

    “A-Rod IS a liar. He’s cheated on his wife, and he’s lied about his past steroid use.”

    And this makes him unique? Far too many people cheat on their spouse and he was more honest about steroids than some. Yet he is always signaled out like he is the epitome of what is wrong with baseball, and he’s not.

    For those who missed it, the Indians signed Michael Bourn to a 4 year 48 million dollar contract. Jon Jay would be a nice target this year. He makes 500K and is every bit the player Bourn is. .300 hitter. CF. Steals. Leadoff. Low K’s.

  12. DONNYBROOK February 12th, 2013 at 11:03 am

    I wanna hear a player report to ST and say, “Yea, I’m outta shape”. Every guy that reports is in the, “best shape of my life”. Sherman continues to be a Hack.

  13. blake February 12th, 2013 at 11:05 am

    @FeinsandNYDN: Girardi said finding a righthanded DH is among his biggest concerns this spring.

    Eh….Nunez, Jeter, Youk, and Tex should be able to fill this

  14. blake February 12th, 2013 at 11:06 am

    Why would the Cards trade Jon Jay?

  15. FiretheUMPIRE February 12th, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Who knows what it would take, Blake.

  16. FiretheUMPIRE February 12th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Blake, and while we’re on the subject of realism, how many comments did you waste talking about a possible 1-year deal for Bourn?

  17. filthy slider February 12th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Hey Cashman, King Felix might have a bad elbow maybe you can give up 10 more prospects & trade for him, it’s the only kind of deal you seem to be able can make.

  18. Rich in NJ February 12th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    “Sherman continues to be a Hack.”

    He is one of the best reporters on the Yankee beat. Hacks don’t criticize the team they cover; Sherman does. Sherman breaks stories. He was the only one who said that Hughes was out of shape a few years ago. People like me criticized him. He turned out to be right.

  19. FiretheUMPIRE February 12th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    I’m pretty sure that was the year Hughes came to camp and blurted, “I’m fat.”

  20. DONNYBROOK February 12th, 2013 at 11:13 am

    Sherman is a conduit for the Yankee FO. He is a Yankee fan, and sometimes like his blowup with Girardi last season, that supercedes his Hack Role, but the guy is a Yankee FO Bull Horn when called upon.

    Pretty sure I always said if….and Boras clients have done it before

  22. blake February 12th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Sherman is one of the only reporters that will actually ask the Yankees questions and challenge their thinking…..he’s been in the game long enough to be I afraid that they’ll cut him off

  23. DONNYBROOK February 12th, 2013 at 11:16 am

    - LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE WAFFLE HOUSE IS OPEN -

    The disclaimers like “IF” are used aplenty around here.

    Why don’t you shut up now! The medical reports on Pineda before the trade showed no problems or issues. Is it all Cashman’s fault if the doctors didn’t do their jobs properly?

    @nickcafardo: No update yet on buchholz who grabbed his hamstring during pop drills and came off field.

    Sniper

  26. blake February 12th, 2013 at 11:19 am

    Donny,

    The Waffle House thing you do is hilarious….please never stop

  27. RadioKev February 12th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    Jack Curry ?@JackCurryYES
    Regarding possibility of ARod distraction, Girardi said, “This club is used to having distractions.”

    Wow

    I kind of feel bad for the guy. Some people’s bodies cannot hold up.

    I read and rely more on Sherman than most others. He doesn’t simply regurgitate what the team tells him.

    It would be very surprising if the Yankees make a trade this spring depsite statements of a need for a right handed hitter. A pick up of a released player is much more likely in my eyes.

  30. austinmac February 12th, 2013 at 11:38 am

    The Toradol story and the Red Sox is an interesting one. That is powerful medication they seemingly gave to players for routine aches and pains. It is suspected that was the cause of Buchholz’ health oproblems last year.
