(Before It's News)

With all this rumor talk about Miguel Cabrera and whether or not the Yankees should get him, you almost forget about Greg Bird, right?

NOT! 

I’ll tell you what I like, fan passion. Check out what BYB reader and Yankee fan Tom tweeted:

I hope he wasn’t yelling at us when he wrote “Enough already!!” Don’t shoot the messenger.

Anyway, good news out of Scottsdale at the AFL. Greg Bird is doing just fine. MinorLeagueBaseball.com writes:

“The timing couldn’t be better for the Yankees, as Greg Bird is back out in the desert and it seems he has found his groove for the Scottsdale Scorpions…he is finding his stroke again. Thursday evening saw him hit his first home run of the fall. He is now 9-for-37 (just .243) but his swing looks good. It is also important to note that five of his nine hits have gone for extra bases, including Thursday’s homer. In typical Bird Dog fashion, he has walked more (eight times) than he has struck out (seven times).”

Minor League Baseball, a good site, I endorse it.

Anyway, the hope here is that with Mark Teixeira retiring and guys like Bird and Tyler Austin returning next season, we don’t skip a beat, and we get younger. I like that.
