Some Sunday Yankees’ notes
Here are some New York Yankees’ notes on another dreary, cold January morning here in upstate New York.
- The Yankees are the fifth most valuable team in all of sports, according to Forbes Magazine. Only fifth? Behind the hated Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins? The Yanks had better ask the Obama administration for a bailout so they can sell the remaining sky boxes and luxury seats at the new Yankee Stadium. Kudos to Zell’s Pinstripe Blog for the find.
- Xavier Nady and Nick Swisher are still being targeted by several teams around the league. New York Times
- At LoHud, Peter Abraham wonders about, then quickly dismisses, free agents Ben Sheets and Jon Garland as candidates for the fifth slot in the Yankee rotation.
- Baseball Intellect has an informative look at the top five prospects in the Yankee system. As John Sickels of Minor League Ball did earlier this winter the site named Jesus Montero as the organization’s top prospect. Kudos to ‘Sliding Into Home‘ for the find.
- Reports are that former Yankee coach Don Zimmer recently suffered a minor stroke. Here’s to a speedy recovery for the 78-year-old, one of the game’s great guys.
