I thought it was bush. I was pissy about ARod's elbow in the general area of Pedroia's man parts last year and this was way worse.

And I'm thinking Joba's headhunting tendencies might be encouraged under Girardi...this could be a fun year.

Sure, it's called doing something called "having fun". A remarkable concept, right?

Billy Crystal is a diehard, lifelong fan of the Yankees and the Yankees' organization (prompted by Yankees' Captain, Derek Jeter) decided to reward Billy by making him an "official" Yankee for a day. So, they signed Billy to a one day minor league pact and gave him one official at-bat during a previously uneventful exhibition game. Crystal was the starting DH in the game. He wore number 60 to signify his 60 years on this planet.

During the offseason, Jeter had asked what he might've wanted for his 60th birthday and Crystal said something along the lines of wanting at least one at-bat as a NY Yankee. Jeter, of course, made it happen.

I warn you, this trend of "having fun" might circulate throughout MLB, so watch out.

AWW...bless! Any other geriatrics lined up to take part? Or is it only multi-millionaires with connections?

As for fun, it would be a lot more fun if it was some kids from less respectable neighborhoods who would appreciate it a lot more.

See, the fun continues! I thought your post was very funny. Good stuff!

I vote only multi-millionaires with connections, though.

Kids are overrated. Let some adults have fun for once. Haha!

Imagine if he had hit one out? Now that would be funny.

Maybe I can get to strike out for the Mets when I am 60.

Well thats good for your ERA John, cause you're usually good for 6 or 7 runs in about 4 innings against the Sox.
Heal up, we need to see you at Fenway, love to watch the homers fly when you're on the mound.

Sox players threatening to boycott Japan if the coaches aren't paid. Good for them I say, glad to see the players standing up for their coaches like that. My guess is MLB caves, as they should.

Agreed, I don't like the Sox much (don't dislike them either, really), but they have always had a fine organization, and I'm glad the team is showing solidarity. This bodes well for Boston's season because it's only going to bring the team closer together.

I think it says a lot about Terry Francona, that the players are going to bat for him & his staff.
