Girardi to Yanks: "... And Finish Your Vegetables"

Yankees' beat writer Peter Abraham posted a photograph on his blog last night "of an ice cream freezer outside the visitors clubhouse at Camden Yards wrapped up in a blanket".

Abraham reports that at Joe Girardi's request, Yankees officials have "contacted the visiting clubhouse manager of every stadium where they play and asked that the candy and ice cream be removed before the team comes to town. ... The players, of course, aren't too pleased."

Rob Bradford reports that the ice cream machine has been removed from the Red Sox players' lounge:
Evidently the machine was one of the most popular luxury items in the Sox clubhouse, to the point where somebody believed it was a bit too popular.
Josh Beckett demanded a trade if the machine is not returned. Mike Lowell added: "I don't know why we can't have ice cream. We won the World Series."

I'm going to assume that the Red Sox got wind of the story and are making fun of the Yankees. Forget about steroids or HGH -- the Yankees are going to be smuggling Snickers and M&Ms into the locker room.

I guess only a criminal mastermind would be able to get past a blanket affixed with tape.

next time MFY come to town ... Manny should bring A-rod an ice cream cone during BP.

All he has to do to keep the ice cream out of Jeter's hands is to put it two feet to his left.

There's a wealth of potential nicknames in there, just a-waiting to be mined.

Great pic Patrick!
FY really looks more like a character from Seinfeld than a baseball player :)
BTW - Thanks to those who sent good karma out Saturday. Wife is out of the woods for now. They removed the port Saturday night and she is recuping and improving. Unfortunately the infection had become systemic before they caught it, so she will be in the hospital and hooked up to IVs for at least a few more days.
Other news - Congress is convening a committee to investigate allegations that the Edy's and Mars companies have colluded to provide banned substances to Yankee's players. David Wells is turning state's evidence and expected to report that he was induced to become a go-between when he met Kirstie Ally at a party for Don Zimmer. Ally claims she wasn't there.

So, does this mean that when a player does well in a game, Girardi will give them a lollipop?

FYI, Manny gets some serious respect (they call him "underrated"!) over at The Love of Sports.
