My Thoughts:

When the final roster cuts were announced today, I was for the most part satisfied.  The only move I was really disappointed over was  the team only deciding to carry one left hander out of the bullpen, and the fact that it is Damaso Marte scares me.  Marte was only reliable during the postseason and costs the Yanks a few games during the regular season.  Boone Logan had an incredible spring training and was a big pick up in the trade of Melky Cabrera to Atlanta for Javier Vazquez.  I understand that he had options left to send him to Scranton but c'mon Joe and Cash.  What's it going to take to put Logan on the big league roster?

By the way, that's a picture from the AP of Vazquez talking to Posada in his final spring start against the Yankees minor leaguers this afternoon.

Tomorrow night is opening night.  I'm looking forward to seeing CC take on Josh Beckett at Fenway.  I can't wait for CC to earn victory number one of hopefully 20 in a Cy Young season!

Baseball is finally back! HALLELUJAH!  


P.S. Happy Easter!
