The last bit of news pertaining to the Yankees yesterday was the announcement of the Yankees and Red Sox opening up the 2010 season on April 4, at 8 p.m. on ESPN2 at Fenway Park.
That’s going to be one chilly night. Shouldn’t Yankee Stadium host the opener since the Yanks are the defending champions?
Here’s another announcement from the MLB: Selig announces committee to review on-field issues.
Lastly, here’s a nice profile on Curtis Granderson by Anthony McCarron of the NY Daily News.. It’s a bit long, but worth a read. My favorite part:
Jerome Cochran, then a scout for the Tigers, saw Granderson, as a sophomore, dash from right field to center one day to catch a deep drive after the center fielder lost the ball. "He had to run about a half-mile to do it," says Cochran, who now works for the Pirates.
"A guy does something like that, it raises your intrigue."
