It has been slow since the Yankees offered CC a record deal, we still haven't heard from him yet. I still expect him to end up in pinstripes, no other team will even come close to what the Yanks are offering. The San Francisco Giants made the first free agent signing of the Hot Stove by signing Jeremy Affeldt to 2 years 8 million. As for the Yankees news the Moose agent Arn Tellem said today in an email that he expects his client to make his decision by the end of this week or early next week. I really dont think at this point it has anything to do with money and i still believe he will retire, yes I know no one does that after having a season like he had but he would have to committ for more then 1 year and Moose has been hinting at retiring all year. Why not go out on top and enjoy his quiet family life out in Montoursville,PA. The big news of the day was that the Yankees announced they will be playing a exhibition series against the Chicago Cubs to open the new Yankee Stadium. The games will be played on Friday April 3 at 7:05PM and Saturday April 4 at 1:05PM. Ticket announcements will be made soon so stay tuned, i wonder if i will get them in my season ticket package. The Cubs will be in town for the first time since 2005 when the Yanks played them in interleague. This series will mark the return of Sweet Lou Piniella who patrolled the outfield for 11 seasons and won 2 championships in 1977 and 78. He was also manager of the yankees in 1986-88. One of my favorites Alfonso Soriano will also be back in town, i hated to see him go but of course we got the great Madonna loving Arod for him so cant argue with that. Did anyone notice that he was hanging out with Kate Hudson in Miami now thats more like it Arod, I mean Madonna she is a little weathered dont you think??
