Pineda Brings Spring Fever

It's February 15, which means, there are only four days left until pitchers and catchers report to Yankees Spring Training camp. Four days! The blogosphere is lit up with stories covering the excitement of camp, and crediting those players who are doing a little something extra to be at their best for the 2012 season. One player in particular is phenom Michael Pineda, who is drawing much attention from the media already in place at the Yankees training facility. Here are just a few notes from the blogroll here at Bomber Boulevard:

At An A-Blog for A-Rod, Brad V. discussess the early entry of Pineda at camp, and how he is formimg a close relationship with Robinson Cano.

The Mighty Casey at Bleeding Yankee Blue gives credit to Pineda and Derek Jeter for setting the tone early by arriving at camp before the official report date.

River Ave Blues' Mike Axisa gives an in-depth look at some of the quotes Pineda gave to the media, and notes the "watchful eye" he will be under during Spring Training.

Spring Training seems to have just a bit more buzz and excitement this year. I think that Yankee fans are excited about seeing what Pineda will do; we are all anxious to find out just how well the orthokine treatment has helped Alex Rodriguez' knee and left shoulder; we are a bit curious to see how The Captain looks healthwise, even if we aren't really coiming out and saying it; we just want to see Curtis Granderson and Robbie hit moon shots on a baseball field.

If you haven't done so already, please take a look at the fan poll on the top right of this page and place your vote for what you believe will be the Yankees biggest story this year. Voting is open until February 29 at 11 pm.
