The location of your locker is a very big deal in baseball. Veteran players want bigger lockers in the corner of the room or at the end of rows. Teams also put young, impressionable players next to certain veterans.
So you might be interested to know that Jose Tabata is next to Bobby Abreu. Or that Phil Hughes is on one side of Derek Jeter. Andy Pettitte is at the end of one row next to Scott Proctor.
Bernie Williams’ old locker in the corner was open this morning until Jose Veras (?) was moved there. Todd Pratt (and not Wil Nieves) is next to Jorge Posada. Hmm.
The guys in the best spots? Mike Mussina, Alex Rodriguez, Jason Giambi and Mariano Rivera.
You want spring training details? You’re getting spring training details.
Meanwhile, the evil marketing weasels have given the Yankees new batting practice jerseys and hats. There are now white inserts on the sides of the BP jerseys and a slim white stripe on the side of the hat. These are just for BP, not games.
