Yankees Notes through 8 Games:
I spent an early season moment in thought today. It was completely unfamiliar territory but I wanted to mention some things I've noticed through 8 games. The Yankees so far, while playing to a 5-3 record, have hardly played their best baseball. The starting pitching has been hit or miss and half the line up isn't hitting yet.
CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett and Andy Pettitte have all pitched well in their first 2 outings. Together they've won 5 out of their 6 starts. Javier Vazquez has pitched poorly in both of his starts but it's really too soon to make any conclusions about him. Although watching today's game, you could hear some boos. Not a good sign! The bullpen has also pitched well for the most part and kept the Yankees in some close games.

Sometimes when you set goals, you have to be prepared for obstacles that prevent you from reaching them. Or immediately reaching them.

Is it yet time to call up Mark Melancon?

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The stalking will begin early. The Yankees and the Boston Red Sox don’t have to wait a week or a month to play each other. They get to do it in the first game of a new season, which is a perfect opener on Sunday night. The comparisons between the teams never cease. So why delay the inevitable?
Why wait to compare CC Sabathia and the Yankees’ rotation to Josh Beckett and the other Red Sox starters? Why wait to assess the new Yankees like Curtis Granderson and Nick Johnson against the new Red Sox like Mike Cameron and Marco Scutaro? Why wait to see the first night of Boston’s not-so-revolutionary strategy of stressing run prevention in conjunction with run production?
Wrestle with these comparisons and others while the Yankees and the Red Sox are side-by-side...

Andy Pettitte can see the end of his gratifying career approaching and can feel the number of games he might have left reduced to a precious few dozen. Pettitte is fine with that scenario, content with trying to help the Yankees fashion another memorable season before probably retiring.

I am talking about Yankees ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte who made his first appearance in Yankees’ camp on Tuesday, taking over for CC. Venditte was on the mound for 1 and 1/3 innings, giving up 1 run.
Hem, hem - I am somewhat ambiguous about it.
First of all – nothing works better if it has multiple functions (printers, that have copying and faxing abilities are much worse than just good printers; food-processors with blenders and meat grinders attachments – no comparison to just a good meat-grinder; universal battery powered drills with gazillion functions – poor imitation of even a mid-price electric drill (Yeh - I use it a lot!); etc.).
Second - I wonder if the same principle can be applied to pitchers. Acknowledging the fact that sometimes switch-hitters...

NATE ROBERTSON TRADED, SO WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE YANKEES?

Here are some notes from today via Chad Jennings of the Journal News and Lohud Yankees Blog....
Chad Gaudin has reportedly signed with the Oakland A's.
Sergio Mitre is starting the home game of the split squad games on Tuesday and the Yankees plan on him pitching more then 3 innings. They want to keep him stretched out in case of an injury, he will be the guy they go to early in the season. It could also be Alfredo Aceves but most likely it would be Mitre.
CC Sabathia will pitch the road split squad game on Tuesday. Girardi said "That is where CC asked to go. I said great that works out good."
Joe Girardi said that all of these missed games for Andy Pettitte may actually keep him stronger through the year. I guess you can always find a positive

OK so for some good fodder and feedback before Opening Day. Most of us on here who follow baseball are likely in a fantasy baseball league, be it on Yahoo!, ESPN, CBS or elsewhere. And this past weekend I'm sure a lot of us had a marathon draft (or five).
So my questions for those of you out there, how many Yanks ya got? Do you cater towards your favorite team when push comes to shove? Make any pacts with fellow fans in your league not to take players from certain teams named say the Red Sox or Mets?
Who was that player you drafted and held your nose in the process? Ever draft one of those star players from a team you hate and get offered somebody from the team you love and maybe that player wasn't as good as the one you had and really put you...

The New York Yankees lost to the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 3-2 this afternoon. CC Sabathia got the start and wasn't perfect giving up 2 hits and 2 walks in 2 innings. He didn't give up a run though and was pleased with his first outing. He said April 4th is when it matters and he understands what he has to do to get ready. He said that his delivery was so-so and that he had a couple of times where he fell off the mound and wasn't headed toward the plate. He said he will work on that in his bullpen coming up. Roy Halladay who started for the Phillies was his usual self facing the Yankees. He pitched 2 perfect innings with 3 strikeouts....
Zack Segovia, Zach McAllister, Ivan Nova and Mark Melancon all pitched scoreless innings. Segovia gave up a walk and
