Bartolo Colon's Health: He's in great shape and is always healthy. What could go wrong?
Jeff Marquez: Guys who can't strike out 4 batters per 9 IP in AAA have a good track record in the majors, right?
Jerry Owens at leadoff: Everyone knows leadoff is the most important position in baseball. And speed is the most important asset. Who cares that Jerry has a .343 OBP (which is higher than his SLG) in AAA? He's fast, or at least he was before the groin injury.
Emphasis on small ball: The '27Yankees were the best offense in baseball thanks to small ball.
