Good Luck Yanks
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Hideki Matsui chuckled Thursday while recounting his big week. Yes, the Yankees slugger really did get married and win a bet with teammates Derek Jeter and Bobby Abreu at the same time.
Matsui made the wager at the start of spring training about who would wed first, then flew to New York on his off day Wednesday to get married.
Matsui said Jeter, who claimed not to have a girlfriend, has one year to get married to win the bet. Yankees outfielder Bobby Abreu, who said he has a girlfriend, has six months to win the bet.
Since Matsui said he knew six months ago he was going to get married, he was able to pull a fast one on his teammates, who both said Thursday they would play off their losses immediately
As promised, Jose Canseco included Alex Rodriguez The A-Rod-Gamble in his new book "Vindicated," but the steroid snitch's charges against A-Rod are flimsy at best, according to a freelance writer who saw an advance copy of the book.
Joe Lavin, a Boston-based freelance writer, found a copy of the book, which is due out Tuesday, in a Cambridge, Mass., bookstore and posted excerpts on his web site.
According to Lavin, Canseco wrote he "introduced Alex to a known supplier of steroids."
A group of reporters approached Rodriguez in Tampa, Fla., today and informed him of Canseco's allegations.

The Yankees say they will not be buying Yankee Stadium from the city, which means they won't be selling off dirt, urinals, and garbage cans for outrageous prices.
This makes me very upset. A CD of mine just came due and I was planning on picking up a new urinal and bag of dirt. I work hard to purchase a few nice items and all of a sudden, someone throws a wrench in my plans. I guess my search for a good urinal will go on. I will not rest until I can find one.
Speaking of garbage, Shea Stadium might be for sale.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Andy Pettitte underwent treatment but did not play catch Sunday, one day after being scratched from a scheduled start due to back spasms.
"I was really feeling pretty good last night, and feeling good about it, what today was going to bring,'' Pettitte said. "Then I woke up this morning and it was kind of tight on me again. I've already lost two days. I don't want to set it back any. I'm just going to wait until tomorrow and hopefully it's a lot better and I can feel comfortable playing catch.''
Pettitte is to make his first scheduled regular season start, April 2 against Toronto.
"I'm definitely optimistic because I think it's going to clear up,'' Pettitte said.
We can't wait to watch the Yankees encore of this game. It was 1 and a half innings of awesome baseball. The day wasn't a total loss, as the matsuifan staff sat right in front of George Steinbrenner's seats. We were told that Reggie and Hank were also in the private box, but we didn't see them.

Yankees take this game 2-1
Tony Lazzeri, Joe Gordon, Bobby Richardson, Horace Clark, Willie Randolph, and Robinson Cano. What do these players all have in common?
They have all played second base for The New York Yankees.
Certainly many of those names may not ring a bell. For me I'm really only familiar with Cano and Randolph.
Robinson Cano has put up some eye opening numbers in each of his first three years in the Majors. If he continues this trend...could he go onto becoming the greatest yankee second basemen of all time?
Lets take a look at each of these guys best year's as a yankee.
(MIND YOU..with the exception of Robinson Cano, I have taken only those Yankee Second Basemen with at least 6 years of playing second base for the Yankees.
Now defensively, they didn't start handing out Golden Glove Awards til 1957 (So we don't know what Gordon and Lazzeri may have won)
Bobby Richardson is the only other one in group winning 5 Gold Gloves..CONSECUTIVELY!!
Offensively I have to say that Cano is right on pace to put up some all time Yankee #'s at the position. Barring any trade. You will remember that Alfonso Soriano was once heralded the same way.
Defensively Cano can only get better as well. He's not too shabby but he ain't all that and a bag of potato chips either.
What do you think?
