Nova, Rapada, and Bobby V: Tuesday Yankees Links

Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

  • I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not a huge Bobby Valentine fan. But if you are, Mark Feinsand has a breakdown of Bobby’s comments to reporters before last night’s Yankees-Red Sox game.
  • Ivan Nova looked good last night. Real good. He threw four scoreless innings and struck out three Sawx in the process. That’s right – we’re at the point where pitchers are starting to stretch out past just one or two innings. Progress!
  • William at IATMS knows that the performances in Spring Training games are by-and-large ultimately meaningless, but he has still enjoyed what he has seen from the young arms in the Yankees’ system so far.
  • The folks at the YES Network are Yankees homers and they don’t care who knows it.
  • River Avenue Blues takes a look at Clay Rapada as an option for the Yankees’ remaining spot on the 25-man roster.
