Colon is sporting an awesome 16.87 ERA.
Vs the Yankees yesterday, he pitched 2/3's of an inning, gave up 3 hits, 3 walks, and 4 runs.
Yankees beat Colon and Sox 8-4.
After Shelly Duncan took his anger out on two aligators and a panther, he and Melky appealed their suspensions.
Did anyone even see Melky punch someone? If he is going to get suspended, I would at least like to see a tape of him clocking somone.
Nick Green wins the game of the Universe. Awesome job Nick. It must be an exciting time to be Nick Green. He was batting .061 with a shot of NOT making the team. As he suits up each day in spring training, he looks around and doesn't see a job open to join the NY Yankees. Maybe he can beat A-Rod out for the job at 3rd??? Perhaps he could back up Betemit, who is backing up Cano?
All his hard work is rewarded by winning a spring training game in the bottom of the 9th with 3 fans left in the stands.
Yankees win game 7-6
Here's to you Nick Green. Some of us watched the end of the game. See you next spring.
Matsui passed his first defensive test with flying colors, recording the final out of the second inning on Thursday and retiring Ryan Doumit. He also may have put to rest any concerns about his repaired knee, which slowed his progress this spring.
"He looked like he was moving fine," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "It's amazing how you always get that tester right out of the gate. He had to go to his right, but he had no problems."
“The ball beat me by quite a bit,” Duncan conceded. “When you’re out by a mile, sometimes you have two things to do: take a weird slide around him to be safe, or slide hard into his glove. I went hard into his glove.”
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays brawled in the second inning of a spring training game Wednesday, an inning after Yankees pitcher Heath Phillips was ejected after hitting Rays prospect Evan Longoria with a pitch.
The Yankees' Shelley Duncan slid spikes high into the Rays' Akinori Iwamuri, drawing the ire of Jonny Gomes and prompting a bench-clearing brawl.
The escalation of bad blood between division rivals stemmed from a home-plate collision in a spring training game four days ago that injured a Yankees catching prospect and irked Yankees manager Joe Girardi.
In the second inning on Wednesday, Yankees first baseman Shelley Duncan slid hard, spikes high, into Rays second baseman Akinori Iwamura. Duncan was subsequently tackled by Rays right fielder Jonny Gomes, clearing the benches.
After failing to make it out of the first inning last Thursday against the Reds, Wang tossed 3-2/3 shutout innings Tuesday against Toronto, looking much more like the pitcher who has won more games over the past two seasons than anyone in baseball.
Wang 6H 2BB 6ER in 2/3 of an inning against the Reds
"Ball not moving and staying high," said Wang, who threw two scoreless innings in his first start Saturday.
Should Shelly be playing everyday in the big leagues? Where would you put him?
