Spring Training has been a blast, but real baseball is right around the corner! I don’t really have a topic for this entry, but I’m too excited not to write. Let’s see…what’s new with me since last time I blogged. I hate this “limiting blogging” thing I’ve been doing lately. Blame calculus and APUSH, please. They have been occupying too much of my valuable time. Also, my brother Bobby turned 18 yesterday! That’s so weird.
Things are changing over there at the Yankees’ camp in Tampa. People have left, some of which won’t be on the team anymore. Like Chad Gaudin. Aw, Chaddy-waddy. For some reason, I really really feel bad about this departure. Chad did everything and anything the Yankees asked of him last season, and he did it well. Because of his icky Spring, with an 8.68 ERA, Chaddy was released. He is now free to sign with any team. He said he was disappointed, but he knew it was bound to happen. Yankee fans will miss you, Chad. Don’t feel shy to use that Key to the City 🙂
I’ll miss you ♥
Also, Jamie Hoffmann, the guy the Yankees got in the Rule 5 draft, was released. I think he’s going back to the Dodgers. This poor cutie really never got a chance. Oh well.
I’m going to miss seeing Jesus Montero, Austin Romine, Reegie Corona (♥), Colin Curtis, and all the other little cuties who were sent back to Minor League Camp. A lot changes during the course of a season; you don’t know which guys you will see again. Especially Minor Leaguers, because a lot of times you don’t even know they got traded.
Speaking of Montero and Romine, that reminds me of Mauer. He’s going to be a Twin for a LONG time, and will earn quite a few bucks doing it thanks to that hefty contract he received. I’m thrilled about this for a number of reasons:
1) First of all, he deserves this. He is the Twins.
2) Mauer is safe from the Red Sox! I was worried that they would sign him after this season!
3) Most importantly, the Yankees won’t have to give up any of their adorable catcher cuties to make room for him. So for now, Cervelli, Montero, and Romine are safe.
I have to admit, I my perception of Jesus Montero is beginning to change. I’m starting to fall for him. He’s adorable. I had it in my mind that I would hate Montero, because he was supposed to be better than Cervelli and I though Cervelli would be traded only to have Montero take his place. But when I actually saw the cutie in action, I changed my mind. He’s friggin’ adorable! And he’s not much older than me…at age 20, he’s just 4 years older than me…
Oh, and Austin Romine is pretty charming as well.
I’ve loved Spring Training so far, but something has beem lacking…and it makes me feel a little bit empty inside…I love the team so much, but I just miss him….
I know he had to go away, but still…I loved Melky and I always will. I wish he was here.
To all the Yankees who are no longer Yankees, this is for you:
I’ll miss you all.
