Javier Vazquez Shuts Down Phillies

Javier Vazquez had four strike outs in two innings and allowed a homer off Jimmy Rollins in the first against the Phillies. This was Vazquez's first game for the spring and he looked very good. He was on the Yankees in 2004 then was traded back to them this year. The Yankees rotation looks pretty good and they needed to fix up the back end which they did. Vazquez could be the answer for the Yankees, in his whole career he pitched 2490 innings and 2253 strike outs. This is a great pitching rotation: C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Brunette, Andy Pettitte, and Javier Vazquez, the fifth spot is still in battle between Joba ChamberlainPhil Hughes and another competitor Sergio Mitre. I can't wait to see them in the regular season.

Giants Add Defensive Monster

 Yesterday at 11:15 Giants have signed free agent  Antrel Rolle a safety from the Arizona Cardinals.  Finally Giants make a notable free agent move. A good looking safety coming from Arizona. This is one of the Card`s best defensive players. Antrel Rolle, 27, has played in 68 regular season games with 59 starts. His career totals include 337 tackles, 296 are solo, 12 interceptions (including four for touchdowns; three in 2007), 36 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks. This is what the Giants needed in their secondary, and once Kenny Phillips gets healthy from his surgery Giants will have a dominating tandem. I was hoping to get Dansby but this is good enough for me.

Giants Plentiful Pickings

The Giants are not a team that likes to spend money on big names, but with an uncapped year they should go get someone. Arizona has a free agent linebacker Karlos Dansby that could help the G-Men a lot. This guy is good and the Giants would be crazy to pass up somebody with his caliber. Dansby has a total of 25 sacks, 10 interceptions and 12 forced fumbles. Another guy out there is Oakland Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha 28 years old, now this may be a little crazy on my part but I say we trade Umenyoria and a draft pick for this guy. Kiwanuka is plenty capable of taking over DE for Giants. Asomugha has a total of 24 passes deflected and 11 interceptions. We need a good CB, and with Corey Webster healthy on the other side we can be great.
