Calling the Yankees' third base fight in early March would be like calling the Preakness after the first turn. But while the odds seemed to heavily favor Brandon Drury, Miguel Andujar has at least kept his name in the conversation. Manager Aaron Boone was asked what Andujar would have to do to close the game between him and Drury after Thursday's 6-4 win over the Phillies at Spectrum Field. First, Boone shrugged. "I don't know," Boone said. "March 1st. We just want to see Drury get comfortable, we want to see Miggy continue to develop and continue to play well and get better and better, and hopefully at some point present all kinds of nice problems for us. It's way early for anything like that." Andujar clubbed another two home runs Thursday to give him four in the last three games. Drury also hit one, his first of the spring.
