A-Rod, CC, Weber impress in win over Tigers

Alex Rodriguez and CC Sabathia were the two most important players of last year’s world championship team. Today, they showed why they are two of the highest paid players in the majors.

A-Rod launched a home run over the scoreboard in left field at George M. Steinbrenner field, and Sabathia fanned eight hitters over 5-1/3 innings.

The Yankees won 6-2, but that’s not what’s important in spring training. You hope to see your top players perform the way they should and your young players play better than expectations.

Jon Weber, a minor leaguer since 1999, has been absolutely on fire this spring. Including his two hits today, in 17 at bats this spring he’s racked up 10 hits and 15 RBI. This guy is a pure hitter and is seeking a spot on the bench.

I’m not saying he deserves it, but his performance is being noticed and he’s a guy you should know.
