Dugout Notes & Quotes

The series of all series is this weekend with the Yankees taking on the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Interesting story in Long Island Newsday that Joe Girardi is fighting to keep his job, while Terry Francona doesn’t have to worry about his job. On my radio show Baseball Talk I stated that Girardi has until the middle of the season and then he’s out. I stand by my statement.

Looks like Xavier Nady will not need surgery, but just rehab on his arm. Good news for the Yankees. They are also set to put Chien-Ming Wang on the DL and see if they can help him with  his mechanics.

    I think it should read 10-6 for the Red Sox and 9-7 for the Yankees! 🙂
