Seattle Signs Sardinha


Well, I guess we know why it was taking the Yankees so long to re-sign Sardinha. He wanted out, and he got it. Bronson is with the Mariners now.

Other non-roster players invited to spring training inlude left-handed pitchers Arthur Rhodes, Philip Barzilla, Robert Rohrbaugh and Jake Woods; right-handed pitchers Roy Corcoran, Brody Downs, Stephen Kahn, Kameron Mickolio, Chris Tillman and Chris Reitsma; catchers Jair Fernandez, Adam Moore and Brant Ust; and infielders Tug Hulett, Mark Kiger and Matt Tuiasosopo; and outfielder Bronson Sardinha.

It's not too surprising. The Yankees have so many outfielding prospects it's not even funny. And it will be easier for his family to come watch him in Seattle (or Tacoma, if he doesn't make the roster).

In other news, Hank is still talking about Santana. It sounds like Cashman and Hal don't want to pay the price for Santana, but Hank does. Hank says he could get his way if he really wanted to, but he doesn't want to upset people too much. Hmmm.

I'd take Sardinha over Damon with even odds. Another Ted Lilly-like mistake the Yankees are making...

Hey, Lisa. Have you heard any news about Bubba? Did his shoulder heal okay? He's not retiring or heading to Japan, is he?

I hope he doesn't go to Japan.

I hope he doesn't go to Japan, too. Japan's a great country and all, but since my Japanese is extremely limited, it will be a lot harder to follow Bubba's career if he goes there.

Not to mention the difficulty of going to a game to see him play...
