Start Spreading the News
I'm leaving today. Well, tomorrow -- bright and very early, hoping to fly back into New York before the storm hits. It's been an extremely interesting couple of weeks... but I miss my friends, my dog, my bed, and healthy food, so I'm ready to go home.
Meanwhile, over in Mets camp, Oliver Perez had a hell of a start against the Red Sox -- striking out David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez twice each. No walks, no runs, five Ks. Damn.
Also, Phil Humber and Jason Vargas were sent to the minor league camp (twice-former Yankee Ruben Sierra was also reassigned; nobody tell Torre he's available!). Looks like the fifth-starter slot is now essentially a race between Chan Ho Park and Mike Pelfrey, though I suppose Sosa and Sele are dark horse candidates. (I was trying to come up with an analogy to the Democratic primaries here -- Pelfrey was going to be Obama -- but I can't quite seem to make it work).
