Off To West Point: The Yankees concluded the spring with an exhibition game against the US Military Academy in West Point NY. The Yankees won 10-5, with Brennan Boesch and Melky Mesa going yard. Travis Hafner was scratched from the original lineup, but is deemed fine.

Roster Spots: Cody Eppley and Adam Warren have made the team according to reports. Warren will probably be the long man until Phil Hughes gets activated from the DL and either David Phelps or Ivan Nova move to the bullpen to take that spot.

A-Rod: Curious to see how Alex Rodriguez is doing? Well you’ll get a look at him on Opening Day. A-Rod will be a part of the opening day ceremonies and be in uniform. Boo and hiss at him all you want from the stands guys, he’s not going anywhere for the next five years.

I’ll have a special look at the Red Sox from Steve Peterson over at Bosox Injection for you guys too look at Monday morning to get you ready for the opener. Enjoy your Sunday!
