IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
Supposedly, Ryan's Rangers and the Yankees have launched an elaborate mating dance that could lead to the trade of Joba Chamberlain - the most beloved and debated Yankee in the George A.D. era.

The Yankees scouted him in winter ball and decided no.He's 39.Remember our poem about him?
Sun, warm weather, and baseball. Every year in Florida and Arizona, MLB teams open up Spring Training camps in minor league stadiums and practice facilities. It brings the big leagues to communities that would otherwise never really see MLB action. The players are separated from the fans by a simple chain link fence, like a set of neighbors in the backyard. I have been lucky enough...
