      It’s always intriguing to see what happens to former Yankees when they are traded away. I can already see the peanut gallery/Monday Morning Quarterbacks ( I never liked Marte) making comments about the Marte/Nady trade again. Interesting how that Marte post had so many replies. Anyway good luck to Ross O.

      i always liked ohlendorf and felt like his power arm was a potential contributor for us if they hadn’t jerked him around so much. starter, long reliever, late inning reliever (all spring), then back to long reliever again. i wish him all the best in pittsburgh. it is obviously tough to compare anything when talking about a pitcher in the national league, and with nady healthy it would have been moot because of what nady provided, but without nady if ohlie turns out to be something that trade could really be a bad one in hindsight.

      Caught this note @ BB

      “BTW, now there are multiple reports on Pete Abe’s blog that the Yankees are NOT letting people have access to the lower level at the end of batting practice. Mind you, this is THREE hours before the game to get autographs.”

      Sucks, if that’s true…

      Raf – it’s true. I just saw something on this recently. Let me check on that.

      i’ve only sat in the bleachers in the old stadium, and they didn’t let you go anywhere so that kind of stuff im used to

      Darn. I cannot find it. Maybe it was someone I heard calling into the radio? Anyway, IIRC, the report said, in the old Stadium, from the end of the dugout up to the foul poles, and then along the OF fence, you had access to get in there during BP, to hug the wall and try and get an autograph or a ball. But, with the new Stadium, in addition to the security guards not allowing you to get into the home plate area on the field level, or behind the dugout sections, now, because the “great seats” are considered to be anything hugging the field, you’re not allowed to get near anything that frames the field – even hours before the game starts.

      FWIW, ‘tho, on that Saturday fake game against the Cubs, I was able to get to the right field foul pole hours before the game. But, maybe that was because no one was looking that day?

      as per pete abe, nady will not need surgery and probably be back this season (sorry MJ :P)

      LOL! With Marte sucking as much ass as he does, I’m sort of starting to root for Nady. The Yanks need SOMETHING to show for that trade.

      I don’t really understand the defensive metrics on Fangraphs but it looks like Holliday’s a decent player with the glove for LF. I don’t know what it would take to sign him — probably a boatload of cash — but with his bat and glove, I wouldn’t say no.

      Holliday is a good player, but in many ways i’d really prefer for the Yanks to not jump into another huge, long-term deal with a player…especially when this player will be 30 on opening day. Way too early to even be discussing this, but I pass.
