Swindal Swindled

Steinbrenner's son-in-law Steve Swindal, has been detained in Florida due to operating a vehicle while impaired. Over the past 18 months, it's becoming more and more apparent that GM Brian Cashman along with Swindal are the Yankees braintrust, effectively running the Yankees as The Boss recedes further into the background. Maybe Big Stein will jump back into the picture if Swindal thinks he can emulate Billy Martin while remaining the driving force behind Yankees operations.

*The Yankees will wear black armbands on their uniform, honoring the late Cory Lidle.

*Barry Zito showed off a new delivery on the first day of Spring camp. The Giants coaching staff cringed, nervous over the need for such a change.

*Kerry Wood bruised his ribs while taking a nap at Cubbie Spring camp. Ok, it wasn't a nap but the incident was no less hilarious. From the AP: "Wood bruised his right side when he fell out of a hot tub at his home." You can't make it up. Wood and Pavano should become inspirational speakers on how to make millions by not living up expectations.

*Torre is down on bended knee . . . begging for Bernie to attend camp.
