- Damaso Marte was OK’d to continue his rehab in Florida according to the AP. He went to Dr. James Andrews because he said he didn’t feel right and he didn’t want to further injure himself, but Doc found nothing wrong in his shoulder. I don’t know how much longer I can say this: Marte would really help this bullpen out as he was a proven reliever in the past…if he ever returns.
- DeAngelo Mack, who the Yankees selected in the 13rd round of this year’s amateur draft, has signed on with the Yankees. He will head to Tampa, and likely stay there until the Staten Island Yankees season begins where he will most likely play.
- Brian Bruney will return to the Yankees bullpen tomorrow, hopefully for good. Obviously, someone will have to be sent down or DFA. If it was up to me I would probably DFA Jose Veras, but I get the feeling Brett Tomko will be DFA. If anyone else gets the axe (besides Angel Berroa who they probably want to keep for now) I will be pretty upset.
- Choose answer choice (A) if you are attending the Yankee game tomorrow. Choose answer choice (B) if you attend PS 55. Choose answer choice (C) if neither A or B apply.
- (A) Nice! You have a chance to meet Alex Rodriguez tomorrow! According to PeteAbe, “A-Rod himself will be in Monument Park tomorrow from 4:10-4:30 p.m. Gates open at 4 p.m., so hustle.” You heard him, hustle.
- (B) Do you like your principal? Well, if you don’t you’ll be happy tomorrow. According to PeteAbe, “Robinson Cano will serve as “Principal for a Day” for PS 55 in the Bronx tomorrow.”
- (C) Better luck next time. Well, there is plenty of other things to do…if you live in New York you could wander around Central Park, catch a Yankee game, go shopping in Manhattan, etc. Have fun!
- FYI, you should really check out this site I found…its called Demolition Of Yankee Stadium. It has hundreds of pictures of the demolition of the old place, they make me sad, but they’re still cool to look at.
That’s going to do it for this edition of Off Day Notes. Hope you enjoyed it.
