From Sweeny Murti of WFAN (Via Twitter):

“Nick Swisher will compete in HR Derby.”

I guess the Yankees aren’t worried about Swisher’s swing..only Cano’s. Chris Young was also a late addition to the contest, according to Chad Jennings. This will be the Yankees first representative in the derby since Jason Giambi competed back in 2003. Now, Yankees fans will have a reason to tune in.

Update: 7:30PM ET: According to Mark Feinsand of the Daily News, Swisher contacted Girardi, Long and Cashman before afreeing to participate in the derby.

The other day, the Yankees front office invited the beat writers, coaching and staff to go paint balling with them at a place called ’Jungle Games’ in Lutz, Florida. These pictures below are before and after the battle. These photos are priceless.

Yesterday Jorge Posada on WFAN while speaking to Sweeny Murti and Ed Coleman had this to say about the Yankees offseason so far:

“We have to try to get one more starter. I think that Cashman knows it. I think it’s a priority for us,’’ Posada told Sweeny Murti and Ed Coleman today on WFAN Radio. “Hopefully, we can get that.’‘

So, wait, what is he saying…Does he not think Sergio Mitre and Chad Guadin can’t be our 4th and 5th starters? Ok, I kid a little, but there is something else at play here. With Jorge saying this it appears as if he doesn’t have confidence in either Phil Hughes or Joba Chamberlain.

While he didn’t say this explicitly, one could read between the lines and assume so. Maybe he didn’t get Cashman’s memo that Hughes and Joba were to be starters?

I’ve got an idea for Posada…Perhaps he should concentrate on calling a better game. Since 2003 his Catchers ERA (Earned-run average of club’s pitchers with a particular catcher behind the plate) has averaged 4.57 with last year being the highest at 5.05. Or should we just have Cervelli or Montero catch full time now….
