Just 10 days until the Yankees open up the regular season. They start the season in Tampa this year. The rotation is a little up in the air right now. Obviously Girardi has already said CC and Kuroda have spots. I would think Hughes has earned a spot there as well. I also think Pineda has earned a spot as well. Even though his velocity was down to start the spring his performances have been decent. That leaves Nova who has been at best inconsistent, and Garcia who has pitched well and deserves a spot. News leaked yesterday that the Yankees have in fact shopped Garcia at least to the Marlins. Even if they do trade Garcia, they still have a surplus when Andy is ready to come back. I think the safest bet is to option Nova down to AAA. It wouldn't be smart to trade him as they will need him next season with Kuroda, Garcia, and likely Pettitte all gone (again). It will be interesting to see what Girardi and Cashman do, they should announce the rotation I would think in the next 5 days or so.
On non-baseball news...Tebow-mania hits the big city as his trade to the Jets became official. Tebow is a class act. He may not be a great NFL QB but it's easy to see why he draws support from the fans and his teammates. Giants owner had a little fun with the Jets though, his comment on Tebow, "The David Carr press conference is tomorrow." I haven't heard of any big Giants signings yet. Though it seemed to work for them last year.
Wrestlemania this Sunday. Rock vs Cena. I couldn't tell you anything other than that but it may be worth a buy just for that.
