MLB News and Notes
Philadelphia Phillies reliever JC Romero and Yankees minor league reliever Sergio Mitre were both suspended 50 games at the start of the 2009 season. They were suspended for positive testing for banned substances.
According to Ken Rosenthal of foxsports Xavier Nady and Nick Swisher are both getting serious interest from other teams. I have said this before and I will say it again, i really think the Yanks are best served by keeping all these guys and rotating them. Gardner or Melky can be the starting CF,Nady RF,Damon LF,Swish can play RF and LF and 1B a little when those guys need to rest,they haven't had a good bench and so long and now they will.
Minnesota Twins owner Carl Pohlad passed away at age 93,im a little late with this one.
Dont forget the Mark Teixera press conference is roughly 45 minutes away on both YES and the MLB network.
