Yankees' New Year's resolutions

First and foremost, Happy New Year to all Scott Proctor's Arm's readers. If no one was reading, I probably wouldn't be writing (which would make some people happy, I'm sure). As I said in the Festivus post, blogging this year has been a lot of fun, and I hope it's just as fun in 2008.

Anyway, don't ask how, but I got a hold of some players' New Year's resolutions.

Robinson Cano: I will listen to our General Manager when he tells me to only play in six winter league games (he was later seen writing this on a blackboard 150 times in a Dominican Republic classroom).

Chien-Ming Wang: I will finally step up and win a playoff game.

Roger Clemens: I will not make another comeback.

Derek Jeter: I will learn how to field ground balls to my left. I will learn to regain my clutchness that has seemed to vanish.

Mike Mussina: I will have an E.R.A. under 5.00 this year. I will not complain about pitching on abnormal rest (I really believe that...).

Chris Britton: I will lose 25 pounds.

Edwar Ramirez: I will learn another pitch.

Chase Wright: I will learn how to induce ground balls.

Kyle Farnsworth: I will become a reliable eighth-inning reliever.

New York Yankees: We will win the 2008 World Series.

Happy New Year everybody! See you in 2008!

Edwar has three pitches, he just hasn't perfected them, hahah

He's been working on that fastball and slider, he just needs to perfect them at this point. I give him where credit is due, he taught himself a lot of this stuff, including his change-up, he'll be fine as long as he keeps up the work on everything.

Um, he has won a playoff game Like, say in 2006. He beat the Tigers in game 1.

He was awful this year. Just awful. But he's been pretty good before, and I think he will be again.
