A-Rod faces surgery

The Yankees are hoping A-Rod's injured hip can make it through the entire season. Cashman says it will need surgery and about 4 months to recover, so they are hoping to get to it in following the season.
I hate when this happens, it seems these things just drag and wind up for a poor season performance. Guess well just wait and see what happens.
CC Sabathia takes the hill tonight for the first time as a Yankee. game is at 7:15.

MLBN is awesome

My cable company actually added a channel that I can watch and like, Major League Baseball Network.

What they do is provide coverage from other networks, so yesterday, I saw a game from NESN, and I passed up a White Sox game, and a Mets game. Spring training games generally hold little interest beyond about the 3rd inning, because who cares about the guys that will probably never make it to the majors, unless it is my team. But the programming looks to be solid, with shows about some of the great World Series games in history, Today will feature the '61 with Mantle and Maris and the '63 with Ford against Koufax. The '59 Gogo Sox will also be on as they take on the '59 Dodgers.
This channel will probably be a favorite all season long. I do like that they will show games from other networks, so we should get a chance to see and hear some of the legendary hometown announcing teams.
