"It's something I've done a million times, but I still can't tell you for sure if that was it. But that's the only thing that I can point to because that night and the next morning, I just didn't feel good. So it's been going on since then."

    What was Nick Johnson's old number?

    It's seems somewhat appropriate...

    He wore #60 (now David Huff), #36 (to be Beltran's) and #26 (Nunez) - since Nunez is the least valuable, I would give him #26.

    60 is available, though, isn't it?

    EDIT: I didn't even know 60 was once Nick Johnson's number! Very appropriate, if we're thinking in terms of the DL!

    We still have Huff?

    Oof.....How many underwhelming LOOGYs do we need?

    Is Roberts really a done deal? I haven't seen anything to make it official. He's not listed on the official team site under active roster or on the 40 man. And I don't recall him being introduced to the media. Maybe he's pending a physical? Or failed one? Just curious.

    I suspect it has to do with the fact that the Yankees do not have an open 40-man roster spot right now. Once the deal is announced, the Yankees would have to DFA someone (yes, players like Huff & Wells can easily be waived), but Cashman would prefer not to for whatever reason.

    Could there be interest in Huff or Wells (or other small parts of the 40-man roster) and Cash is trying to extract every centavo he possibly can? Of course, if he got anything, even a 39 year old never been out of A ball player, the acquiring team would be paying too much.

    Maybe cash is waiting to see if an injury will occur to roberts before he puts pen to paper and signs his contract? Roberts is prolly sweating bullets and trying not to move, just in case

    Nothing announced yet. The official Yankees roster has it as blank right now. I think #14 might be the lowest available number.

    Although with A-Rod not officially on the roster, and Roberts on a 1-year deal, it would be funny to assign him #13.

    He'd probably sue the team

    And if ARod decides to come to ST, the Yankees should assign him #83.

    Do they allow triple digits? 666 is looking pretty good in the eyes of Selig right about now...

    Roberts claims he's healthy ... haven't we heard this before?

    Roberts is an intriguing player. Yes, there's a good chance he's going to miss a month with an ingrown toenail and a week with a toothache. But, when he's been on the field, he's still performed at a high level. If the Yanks get an above average 2B that can play solid D and provide an occasional offensive spark, I'll take it (and the millions that they saved over Cano, of course).

    I'm getting flashbacks to that video where Jack Curry watched Kevin Youkilis cook an omelet while talking about the year he was going to have in 2013.

    Roberts doesn't just miss a week or a month once in a while. He's averaged 48 games a year the last 4 years. As for his on-field performance....246/.310/.359 over those same 4 years.

    He used to be a really good player.

    Brian Roberts sucks. Still have nightmares of his walk-off homerun vs. Mo at Camden yards about 8 years ago. Unfortunately, we're going to get a tiny fraction of that type of production this year. If he even plays!

    Perhaps this should be re-phrased. It's a bit offensive, especially if Brian is sensitive and happens to be reading. After all, the man's had a serious concussion. He might hire someone to hunt you down like a dog and slit your throat in a dark alley somewhere in Jersey. Tell me you won't then have real nightmares. :-)

    Community Standards:
    Bashing Players, Managers, the Media, etc:
    Bashing of players, anyone who works for the Yankees or covers the Yankees will not be tolerated. That goes for ALL players and ALL teams. But remember - negative analysis is NOT bashing, provided it is backed up with fact. For example: Bashing a player would be saying: "Derek Jeter sucks!" Whereas a legitimate analysis of a player would be: "I don't think that Derek Jeter is the best defensive shortstop in the league, but based on his fielding percentage and range factor, he isn't near the bottom of the list either." In addition, bashing players on other teams, other athletes, celebrities or others in the public eye will also not be tolerated.

    He's a Yankee now, so I'm rooting for him to ... not suck. And to stay on the field while not sucking.
