New Spring Styles

With the clocks now sprung forward, the calendar officially saying spring, and the snow gone, baseball really is right around the corner. The dawning of a new season is very close. 

Spring brings so many good things aside from baseball. I always look forward to the new spring styles in fashion. I’ve noticed several Yankees sporting some new styles this spring. Some I like, and some….ermm…not so much.

- The New Slender Sabathia

Well, more slender than before. Coming off knee surgery, CC decided it would be beneficial to drop a few pounds before the season. He accomplished his goal and lost around 30 pounds. I think Sabathia looks fabulous.

And not only does he look good – CC might even pitch better now that he won’t have that extra stress on his knees.

I like this new CC, but I sort of miss the old one…I mean can I still call him nicknames? Like my Hefty-Lefty, or CC my Chocolate Chunk? His belly was cute, especially since he pitched so well with it.

Look at him…trying to find his old belly and failing. But I guess I shouldn’t be too down. He’s smiling here – he has embraced his new slender(er) self. I can still call him cute names if I want.

Oh, and that picture just reminded me of a new style that I DISLIKE:

- Sergio Mitre’s New Uni

Mitre was having himself a pretty solid spring, but the Yankees traded him anyways, explaining that they felt they had a “surplus” of pitching (which I think you can never have). I loved Sergio Mitre and I feel bad for him. But what’s done is done.

In the trade, the Yanks got Chris Dickerson, an outfielder. In his Yankees debut in the game today, he went 3-3. I wish him luck.

And of course, Dickerson will look better in a Yankee uniform.

- Joba Chamberlain’s New Hairstyle

Brian Cashman didn’t want to discuss Joba’s weight GAIN, so I’ll refrain from that. I will just note that I think his body looks good…he doesn’t look fatter, but rather he appears stronger. So that’s nice.

But the hair…it sticks out of his cap. It’s long, curly, it’s…it’s almost resembles the Phil Hughes hair of a few years ago!

Okay…I’m not too fond of this messy look, but it worked for Hughes. If it works for Joba, I might learn to really like this look.

-Mariano Rivera’s High Socks

Yes, yes, YESSSS!!!! This is my FAVORITE new style of the spring, and I hope he continues to wear it into the season. God, he looks awesome. I wonder why he didn’t try this earlier. High socks make every player look better. It made A-Rod look better.

Speaking of A-Rod, I don’t know what’s up with him…

- A-Rod’s Stuffed Face

It’s a little unflattering to say the least.

Every time he’s at-bat, Alex stuffs handfuls of sunflower seeds into his mouth, and stores them in his cheek, chewing and spitting every few seconds. It looks ridiculous. I don’t know how he can possibly play like that without choking himself.

Who am I kidding, right? Pshh…”how can he play like that…” A-Rod is having an AMAZING spring! He’s hit like 6 home runs, and the one I saw today went about 440 feet to dead centerfield. He’s a beast!

Alex, if you wanna stuff your face, that’s fine. Just keep hitting!

Overall, I think my Yankees look very very good…aesthetically, of course. But baseball-wise as well. I think it’s going to be a fun season. I can’t wait for it to begin!

GO YANKS!

Hahahaha! great entry, Virginia. Love it. I know you’re bummed about Sergio, but I think it was time for him to go. Hopefully Kevin Millwood fill his void. Totally agree with you about everything else. Slim CC, Joba’s hair, Mo’s socks, and A-Rod’s, well, snuflower obsession. hey if it worls and they play well, I’m all for it. Opening Day’s right around the corner!!!!! Exciting!!!! Go Yankees!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spring is here? Snow is gone? You wouldn’t know it up here in Michigan’s U.P. I can’t believe I’ll be at a game two weeks from today, but maybe it’ll be warmer down state. Enjoy the rest of the 161 games.

Virginia,
Looks like Joba and Evan Longoria might have met up this offseason and went to a salon and accidently got the same perm action…Not sure if the wavys and curls will make him seem like a kinder, gentlier Joba. Maybe he has a Samson complex, and that is why his pitching seems….demure compared to the past.
I really do not understand Cashman some times. You never have enough pitching, but if Mitre was out of minor league options, it might of been a necessary move. I see you guys are beginning to see the”Bad Santa” side of Soriano…..Good Luck with that.

Great observations!!!! The Yankees look ready to go, except for Granderson. It’s going to be a fun year in the AL East.
