Odds and ends

Just a few notes about the Yankees and the WBC this past week...

-Did anyone else find the WBC boring until the Puerto Rico game? That game had the feeling and intenstiy of a playoff game to me, I can't wait till the US plays Cuba, Japan, or Korea.

-Derek Jeter has looked pretty bad defensively so far in the WBC, missing two diving plays against Puerto Rico. Hopefully this is just a preseason problem and he settles in as we get closer to opening day.

- The fact that Youkilis and Pedroia could miss extended amounts of time due to injury only adds to the awesomeness of the WBC. Maybe this will balance the Arod injury a little.

- There was a really cool article in the Post earlier this week here its nice to see that chemistry in the club house already.

- Matsui, Posada, and Mo all look really good so far. Hopefully they can put up numbers similar to what they were before they got injured. Matsui had the best batting average in the American league at one point last year.

- My thoughts and prayers go out to Aaron Boone who announced he will be undergoing heart surgery later this week.

Anyway I'm out, March Madness starts tommorow good luck with your brackets everyone!
