Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Mariano Rivera threw a bullpen session yesterday, while Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams sat out with minor injuries, as Mike Mussina was roughed up by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. As Mussina explains, there are some days when you just don't have it. He told Newsday:
"As you get ready for a new season, some days it feels like you've never been out there before. For me, this is about the time when I feel kind of blah," he said. "It happens. You work through it."
I wonder if Moose ever has the dream that Nuke LaLoosh had, standing on the mound with nothing more than his jock and garters...n'aaah, probably not.
Ed Price has a Q&A with Tony Womack in the Newark Star Ledger.
Jim Baumbach profiles the happy new father, Jaret Wright in Newsday.
Lastly, check out Mike Marino's interview with Rob Neyer over at NYYfans.com.
Is the third time the charm?
The Wright article mentions "social scouts." That sounds like a good gig. I wonder who these people are that get to pass judgement on the personal lives of baseball players.
