Yankees are Busy
The Yankees are keeping me busy today. They have signed Angle Berroa to a minor league deal. He was the AL rookie of the year in 2003 and has done nothing since. The Yankees will give him a shot at making the bench. They also signed OF John Rodriguez to a minor league deal. Peter Abraham of the Journal News is saying he heard the Yanks signed several guys that will most likely wind up in scranton, but nothing has been announced yet other then these two. Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports reported Berroa and Joel Sherman of the Post reported John Rodriguez.
The Big G-Jason Giambi has agreed to a 1 yr 4.5 million dollar deal with Oakland. He has a 5 million option for 2010 or a 1 million dollar buyout. He never really lived up to his hype with the Yanks but lets wish him well, as he was a fun guy to have around. He is a very colorful person and he will do well back in Oakland where he can grow his hair out and party a little more. Watch out the Big G is loose on the West Coast.
Big Tex will join CC and AJ in not participating in the World Baseball Classic. The only Yankees that will be participating as of now are Arod for the Dominicans and Jeter for USA. Wang,Posada and Matsui because of injuries will be told by the Yankees not to participate and it is allowed. This bodes well for the Yankees to keep most of the team together in the spring and try and mesh together with a lot of new guys, Robinson Cano should also not participate and really work hard and get himself in shape.
