Yankees Rained Out Again

The New York Yankees were on there way to Viera, a long bus ride from Tampa. They got the call to turn back around because the game was called. They had to make adjustments as they have now been rained out 2 straight days. It has been quiet on the news front so far but here is what I know. Andy Pettitte threw a 3 inning simulated game, I know he faced Austin Romine but not sure of who else. He will not get into a game until Wednesday the 17th. Joe Girardi said "He's got four more starts, we will make sure he sees live people." Joba Chamberlain will pitch out of the bullpen behind Andy Pettitte on Wednesday. Phil Hughes will pitch in relief of A.J. Burnett on Tuesday. Joe Girardi was throwing batting practice to his son and one of his sons friends as Pettitte was throwing his simulated game about 30 feet over. I like the fact that Joe Girardi likes having the families and especially kids around, it makes for a more fun and loose clubhouse and I think that is a good thing for the Yankees. I think it helped them get where they did last year and it will continue to help them. It is very stressful with all the media and just being the Yankees.
