Should be a fun year.

Next step in the process, looking forward to seeing which young players step up.
Want to see Frazier and Torres

And if it all looks too big for them.

Hoping to see Judge make more contact.
well i did start as ST thread

but it is a general thread for everybody
Like everyone else, excited about watching the kids.

And I really wanna see if Severino has developed his changeup and how Bird bounces back from injury.

Severino called Pedro Martinez and asked him for guidance this off season. They met about five times and worked on mechanics. Smart move
I think that Yes should broadcast the preaseason workouts

batting practice sessions, fielding drills, interviews with players and coaches. Its baseball, its not like there are plays that they do not want the other teams to see.

I was thinking about that this morning...

If baseball really wanted to market itself and get back up with the bigdogs(NFL and NBA), there is a huge opportunity this time of year. There is nothing else to compete with.
The cable networks have been picking up more coverage...

more night games, more ST-themed programming. But it's still not all that popular. As much as I wish it was otherwise, programming that caters to me is unprofitable because not many people are interested in the things that interest me.
Severino down 10 lbs

with increased flexibility. Sounds promising.

Girardi says Bird or Austin could win starting 1B job and Carter's ABs will be based off how young guys do #Yankees
Hoping Judge proves he can be more than Pedro Cerrano  
mfsd : 2/14/2017 11:33 am : link
at the big league level

Frazier and Torres should be fun to watch this spring

Like the rest of you, really hoping Bird proves healthy and ready to go, and hope Austin sticks as a utility 1B/OF

Our bullpen should be very good again, Betances can go back to the role he's dominated in, and Clippers and Warren should help Girardi try to avoid overusing Betances and Chapman
Beautiful sight...

Love to see which kids set themselves apart

I have big hopes for the baby bombers and hope that a few of them show they are big league ready. I would love to see Judge's new batting stance prove he's ready for prime time and anxious to see if Bird is back to his pre-injury form.

I wonder what Joe would do if Torres hit .450 and leading the team in HR's and RBI's and fielding like the second coming of Ozzie Smith. That'd be a hell of a dilemma
