The talk so far has been about C.C.'s weight loss (which I've known about through my own extremely private, no-I-will-never-reveal-who-he-or-she-is source) from his reduced intake of Cap'n Crunch, but there have been rumblings about AJ, who is set to hit the bullpen tomorrow morning, including this NY Post blog article, where AJ is quoted about the support from (sigh) his lovely wife.
Every conversation I have had about the 2011 Yankees season has included me as the lone defender of AJ Burnett. I do honestly believe that is going to come out of whatever bs he was in last year and make this a fantastic year. I only know this on my own dumb feeling and also the (maybe too blind) faith that I put in Yankees to perform as Yankees should.
On a related note, last week, Ashley was lucky enough to sit courtside at a Knicks Game. I don't know who they were playing, nor do I care, but I am quite jealous that she was literally feet from Joe Girardi, as pictured below:

I asked Ash to introduce herself to Joe and tell him about my blog but she had a rare bashful moment (and claimed he was too swarmed) so she didn't. Next time, Gadget!
