The best news out of the New York Yankees Spring Training facility this year has to do with Andy Pettitte. Well, his son, actually. Which means nothing good has really come out of Tampa for the Yanks. But fellow staffmates of Pettitte sent their congratulations to his son Josh, after he registered a no-hitter for Deer Park high against Boerne Champion. Josh, a senior, is headed to Baylor to play ball next year in college. He struck out 10 while not allowing a single batter to reach base via a hit ball. That led to a proud papa telling everyone at camp, and then they sent out their tweets. S/O to @jpettitte21 congrats on the no hitter! — CC Sabathia (@CC_Sabathia) February 23, 2013 Big shoutout to my boy @jpettitte21 on 10ks and a NO-HITTER!!! — Joba Chamberlain (@Joba_62) February 23, 2013 Congrats @jpettitte21 on the NO NO! #boom #10Ks — Phil Hughes (@PhilHughes65) February 23, 2013 Granted, he has probably talked to some pretty famous Yanks, since his dad has been with the organization for 14 of his 17 years in the Majors, but that’s still pretty cool.

New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was hit by a pitch on his right forearm in his first at-bat during Sunday's spring training game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
X-rays revealed his forearm is broken and he will be out for 10 weeks, meaning Granderson all of spring training and the first month of the regular season.

In early 1964, after he cracked up on the air during the Yankees' World Series debacle against Koufax and Drysdale, announcer Mel Allen - the Voice of the Yankees for more than 22 years - was abruptly shown the door. He had given the organization everything, and in return, the ownership spread rumors of booze, uppers and homosexuality, and threw him overboard like a rotting piece...
First Granderson, now Youkilis? Reports out of Yankee camp are that Youk is being scratched from their game today with a sore left oblique and will be reevaluated in a couple of days.
Kevin Youkilis said his injury felt like a cramp, not a strain. Wanted to play today but Yanks are being cautious.

Again, I don't like wishing injury...
Who knew that Johnny Damon was such a big fan of the Carly Ray Jepson summer hit, Call Me Maybe?
Well New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman certainly does now.
As yesterday the ex-Yankee told Michael Kay on his ESPN show that he would gladly accept league minimum money to fill in for Curtis Granderson until his broken right forearm heals.
Damon expressed confusion to Kay about why...
AND ANOTHER ONE
Tweet With the Harlem Shake being the new craze, New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia and some family and friends decided to get in on the fun, with Sabathia uneventfully riding a segway around: Oh. Hopefully this whole Harlem Shake comes to a screeching end soon. -ALR

As soon as he went down, the New York Yankees were searching for another outfielder. Curtis Granderson was hit by a pitch yesterday and eventually diagnosed with a fractured forearm. While the front office may not actually have reacted that quickly, it seems certain the team will try to fill the void as Granderson heals. Two players have already been mentioned as trade targets...

New York Yankees 1 — Baltimore Orioles 5

The New York Yankees start the 2013 spring training schedule with a couple questions they have not had over the past several seasons. Their outfield is not as deep and they have age to deal with in their starting rotation. The Yankees also have to deal with the fact they lost their starting catcher, Russell Martin, to the Pirates in a “bidding war.” Actually, I think my last...
Curtis Granderson‘s arm injury has the Yankees in the market for a center fielder — a role Johnny Damon believes he’s still fit to fill.
Damon, who played four years in New York from 2006-09, told the New York Daily News that he would definitely be open to donning the pinstripes again, though he does not anticipate receiving a call from the team.
“I don’t expect to hear...
