Joe Girardi is getting to put more of his spin on this team this year. After previously announcing that Xavier Nady would start in right field, and Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon would switch places in the lineup, Girardi told reporters yesterday that Brett Gardner had won the center field job over Melky Cabrera.
The other big news yesterday was the first game at Citi Field. Squawker readers know that Jon and I will be there this Saturday to see the Mets vs. the Red Sox. And while I still haven't figured out who to root for - or against - I do have a naming idea.
Since we taxpayers are footing the bill for the naming rights at this palace, I suggest that the tarp be officially known as the TARP, as in Troubled Assets Relief Program. Every time they roll out the tarp for the rain delay, the announcer can say how this rain protection was brought to you by TARP. Talk about a win-win!
