    Who chooses these players? How does Musty not get an invite and Antoan Richardson does. It seems as if they pick names out of a hat….what a mistake.

    of that group, Montgomery is most likely to soon make a contribution to the Yankees

    Leaving out Mustelier makes no sense. What do the Yankees have to lose by inviting him ? He looked good last year in Spring Training , as good as anybody else they played there , and had a decent season in the minors last year after recovering from the knee contusions he sustained at Spring Training. I must confess I don't understand the logic this Management team operates under.

      Simple enough, they already are set in the INF, and know what Mustelier can do. They are using ST to take a look at these other guys. Also, Mustelier was moved to RF in the past because of defensive issues, and there is some thought that he is older than his stated age.
