New York Yankees News & Notes: 1/11/13

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Major League Baseball Announces Testing for HGH:

The BBWAA failed to induct any players into the Hall of Fame this week, and in some potentially coincidental timing, MLB announced that they will begin random blood testing for HGH beginning this season. The official announcement can be read in its entirety over at LoHud.

Chad Jennings on Dale Murphy and Robinson Cano:

Murphy will no longer be eligible for the Hall of Fame after failing to secure enough votes in his 15 years on the ballot, so what does that mean for Cano's potential to make it to Cooperstown?

Hal Steinbrenner Says Offseason Work Not Yet Complete:

Those worried about the current state of the offense, rejoice. Baby Stein says that the Yankees are still pursuing another bat before they head to Tampa for Spring Training. The team remains in on Michael Morse and Scott Hairston as potential targets.

The Rocket Not Surprised By HOF Results:

After receiving only 37.6% of the vote, the former Yankee will not be heading to the museum of all that is pure and good, and he seems to have seen it coming. I cannot even claim to be a fan of Roger Clemens, but he was one of the best to play the game, and it will be a shame if he and others like him cannot be recognized in some way eventually.

CC Sabathia and the Best Shape of His Life, Maybe:

The Yankees' ace has lost 20 pounds following elbow surgery this offseason. It circulated the internet before that management had concerns about the big man's weight before signing him to an extension, and he now appears committed to living up to his end of that bargain, at least until his next Cap'n Crunch binge.
