Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Waiting for the axe to fall

Well, the Yankees have a full roster, and at least three players they need to add (Mo, A-Rod, and Hawkins). Tonight at midnight is the non-tender deadline. Probably the only Yankee in danger of being non-tendered is Brian Bruney. Last year, it looked like he was destined to be our setup man. But he hasn't pitched as well this year. And the rumors about why Arizona dumped him seem have some substance: he's difficult. Pete Abe said he's "oddly resistant to advice."

And tomorrow is the dreaded Mitchell report. There's a big press conference tomorrow. The names of 60-80 major league juicers will be revealed. Will there be any big names on the list? (Pettitte or Clemens, as in the leaked Grimsley affidavit?) Or will it be all Matt Lawton types?

Betemit gets DFA'd and Nick Green makes the team. I'm calling it.

Three players to DFA... easy: 1.) Giambi (didn't even play over Minky), 2.) Moose (didn't play over a minor leaguer), and 3.) A-Rod (just because)

It's Beam, DeSalvo, and Rasner. Nick Green has a minor league contract, and doesn't have to be put on the roster.

Well, it should've been Giambi, Moose, and A-Rod.
