Manny Already Being Manny

  • Manny Ramirez will be over a week late to Spring training, possibly arriving on March 1st. This comes from his new mouthpiece and fellow whack-job, Julian Tavarez. According to Tavarez, Manny's mother had surgery recently.

  • John "I'll Tear You To Ribbons" Gibbons agreed to an extension with the Toronto Blue Jays. Maybe Canada's obsession with hockey and its brawler mentality is to blame. Gibbons began his fighting career by challenging clubhouse-cancer Shea Hillenbrand. Unfortunately, he was unable to successfully defend his title when LHP Ted Lilly mortified Gibbons in what has become known as "The Rumble in the Tunnel."

  • Although Joe Torre has repeatedly used his clout, reaching out to Bernie through multiple media outlets, Williams has maintained his absence from camp. Cashman also continually stated that the minor league invite is not a slight, but an opportunity. If Bern does not appear in camp by Wednesday, his time with the Yankees will have come to an abrupt and perplexing end.
