Yankees hire Kevin Towers

  • The next Jorge? Jesus Montero is tearing it up in the Minors and was ranked the 19th best prospect in baseball by MLB.com. The 20-year-old still has a lot of growing up to do, but he could be a pivotal figure in pinstripes in the near future. Don’t be surprised if you see him behind the dish when Georgie hangs up his cleats.
  • Heeeeeeeere’s Johnny. Damon is attempting to run through the AL East. Have fun with the fan base in Tampa, you greedy bastard. Yankees fans now know what Red Sox fans found out after the 2005 season: that Johnny Damon only cares about the money. He may come across as a fun-loving knucklehead that doesn’t take anything too seriously, but in actuality he’s a selfish prick that can be bought by any team. He’s just a hired gun — a tramp.
  • They’ll be holding the Winter Olympics in the Underworld this year because, apparently, the Yankees have a budget and Hell has frozen over.

Quote of the day: “I’m itching to get to spring training, itching to get started, itching to see the guys and just try to do it again,” said CC Sabathia Tuesday night as he was receiving his third straight Warren Spahn Award.

Me too, big guy. Me too.
