Daley & Garner: Off To NY

Matt Daley, a Queens native, signed a minor league deal today with the New York Yankees.  He is still re-habing from the rotator cuff injury he sustained last August.  The Yankees also signed Cole Garner to a minor league deal.  He was non-tendered by the Rockies in December.  Daley played several seasons with the Rockies, while Garner played last year in CS.  He was called up for a few games in July.

Daley always was a great interview at the Fan Fest. Drew Goodman liked to get him to tell his story: undrafted out of college; had to work his way all the way up to MLB. I think that’s why he was so steady on the mound, he kept an even demeanor in the face of adversity.

We don’t really need to bring in anyone for the bullpen. We pretty much have it set even without Street. Bettancourt, Brothers, Belisle, Lindstrom, Reynolds, Escalona, and somebody that just missed being in the rotation like a Esmil Rogers.

was disappointing to see Daley struggle after the injury..just was never the same.

Gary…interesting with those 2 in the same dugout is an understatement…just like other head cases (who can forget Bradley) you know the fuse is already burning. Just a matter of time.

Wow! Just got here from ITR. I’m a little behind but great work.

So, any predictions on how long it takes CZ and Oz to get a grip on each other’s necks?

Spring training? Opening day? Memorial Day? July 4? Aug 1? Labor day?
