“I missed (Joe Torre) when we were running. We haven’t run that much in the past.”

A lot of the players are talking about how much running they are doing in camp. While it makes for a good story to think that the new manager is cracking down and making the players run, it really has as much to do with strength and conditioning coach Dana Cavalea.

The Yankees fired former “director of performance enhancement” Marty Miller last May after a spate of hamstring injuries. In researching it, the Yankees determined that the players had not done enough running in spring training to condition their legs.

No matter who the manager was, there was going to be more running.
