Yanks Start it OFF











Chien Mien Wang started right where last year left off, posting 2 scoreless and hitless innings. Wang had his usual hard, heavy sinker, that baffled Minnesota's major and minor leaguers. Batter after batter drove the ball staright at the ground for easy outs. Also on the day, Yankees phenoms Philip Hughes and Jose Tabata had a rollercoaster day, but showed plenty of promise. The 2o year old Hughes pitched 1.1 innings giving up 1 run on 1 hit 2 bb and a K. He showed off his powerful fastball and knee buckling curve, but his control got the best of him. Tabata at 18 years old is jewel of the Yankees organization as far as hitters go. At 17 last year he played in the Future Stars game and laced teammate Hughes, had a 1 for 2 day. Look for Tabata in A YAnkees Uniform with in the next year or so. Also on the day Giambi proved his wrist is healthy afte rsmashing a towering ball out of the park for a 2 run homer, and Johnny Damon, beer belly and all also homered on the day.

I hope you don't plan on posting such write-ups after every game.

Not at all. However, you make Phil Rizzuto seem objective.

I think we should get Giambi to live blog a game.

3rd Inning- Held bat out striaght and stared at it while sitting on the bench.
