Sliding Into Home:
New York Yankees
Here's tonight's lineup:
Brett Gardner CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Vernon Wells LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Jayson Nix SS
Chris Nelson 3B
David Phelps P
Austin Romine C
Since that was somewhat depressing, here's some better news on some injured Yankees:
David Robertson is ready to return.
Ivan Nova is also on his way back from that inflamed right triceps. He will pitch in an extended spring training game and if there are no problems could join the team in Cleveland.
In the same NY Post article linked above it was reported that Mark Teixeira will test his right wrist with on-the-field batting practice this Friday. He's already hit off the tee and taken grounders. Curtis Granderson had five at-bats in an extended spring training game. Both are still probably a month away, maybe less. And Francisco Cervelli is going to have his cast removed soon and will resume baseball activities in five weeks.
Things are ugly right now as far as the roster goes, but with the Yankees 5 games above .500 I think we all should be pretty happy with where this team is right now.

The ancient storytellers say that on May 17, 2002, the tragic hero named Jason became a Yankee Argonaunt for eternity. It happened in the 14th inning of what appeared to be a soul-stealing defeat to the fearsome Twins. A pitcher called Sterling Hitchcock had surrendered three runs, and the Yankee ship was taking water. Shane led off with a single. Alphonso hit a pop fly. Jeet singled...
Earlier today, New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano collected his 1,500th hit as a member of the organization in the third inning against the Colorado Rockies.
After Cano collected the hit, the ball was sent to the Yankees bench where it was saved to be given to Robinson at a later date.
Before Robinson got back to the Yankees dugout, a couple members of the coaching...

TIP O' THE CAP
Video: Tip your cap to this guy's grab
Hey, if you don’t bring a glove, what are you supposed to do? Use your hands? Not bloody likely, at least as far as this fan is concerned who made a pretty nifty grab of a home run ball during the New York Yankees-Colorado Rockies game on Wednesday night at Coors Field.

Wells had a big night. Later, the Yankees' outfielder even got a chance...
Vernon Wells jacked a two-run home run to deep left field during the top of the first to give the Yankees an early 2-0 lead, but that wasn’t even the most impressive part of the play. A single fan was sitting out in left and smoothly snagged the home run ball in his hat. He casually stood there accepting praise for the grab and brushed a little dirt off of his shoulders in the...
