Fights, injures and the signing of Billy Crystal. Wow, things were calm when I left!
About Shelley, I don't know what to think. It sure does look like he did it on purpose, but I do like how the Yankees are showing early that they'll defend their players this year.
I also wanted to mention that I hate Jim Rome.
He torched Shelley and the Yankees today, and even stated that his teammates don't have his back.
Really Jim? How about explaining these quotes then:
Brian Cashman: “I’ll take 25 Shelley Duncans. How about that?”
Derek Jeter: “If I were Shelley I wouldn’t change the way I play the game. There’s no reason to change the way he plays the game.”

I'm as passionate about baseball as anybody, but at the end of the day, it's a game.
"Then the mob of Red Sox fans allegely threw the victim to the ground and repeatedly kicked him."
What's really sad about the whole thing isn't the story itself, which can probably be explained away by to much alcohal. What's sad, is that there will be Red Sox fans who are happy about this. People who think this kind of stuff shows some sort of Red Sox pride. People who think that their fans are better because they start fights over baseball. You stay classy Red Sox fans.

Of course what caught my eye, was who they think has the inside track for the LHRP position.
The more I follow this guy the more I find myself rooting for him. Right now I have no faith in Sean Henn or Igawa so if Girardi does take a LHRP, I hope it's Traber.

He pitched in the intra-squad game, and got knocked around a bit, but that was against right handed hitters.
Although Girardi has said he won't necessarily take a lefty when they go north, you have to think him and the Yankees are hoping somebody steps up..
Igawa will be given every chance to earn the job, mostly because the organization is still embarrassed about the contract.
But Traber could steal that job away if keeps getting the opportunity to pitch against left handed hitters. I know I'd much rather see him rather than Igawa or Henn at this point.

If you can't pick out the Red Sox bias in the article and in the video, then chances are you're a Red Sox fan yourself.
I especially like how Steve Phillips completely side steps the last question when he's asked if he's a Red Sox fan.
“Red Sox Nation?” What a bunch of [expletive] that is,” he [Hank Steinbrenner] said in an interview with The New York Times’ Play magazine. “That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans.
“Go anywhere in America and you won’t see Red Sox hats and jackets, you’ll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We’re going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order.”
This man is passionate about this team.
