    Morgan Ensberg makes the team

    For anyone that has been checking out the Yanks spring training games, what do you know about Billy Traber? Looks like he'll make the club as the lefty out of the pen.

    He's looked great, but so did Jeff Karstens last spring. I thought he was going to be a great #4-5 pitcher. I'm not going to get too excited until we see what they can do when it counts.

    Traber has always been awful everywhere he's pitched.
    As a lefty he likely will be used in long relief during blow-out games.

    Every team needs one of those guys but I assumed Igawa would fill that role.

    Igawa hasn't even earned that role, he won't make the 25 man roster when camp breaks.

    God, I haven't heard Traber's name in ages.

    Ex-Met Great right there who was dealt in the Alomar deal. From what I recall he always a pretty good prospect until he had Tommy John, at which point his curveball lost some of it's life and he ended up as a Journeyman.

    Traber has been very good against leftys recently, but he makes rightys into HOFers.
