Today is Really Long Meeting Day.

The Yankees will have their first full-squad workout today. But the first order of business today will be a lengthy meeting in the clubhouse for all of the players in camp.

The list of speakers:

GM Brian Cashman: We will probably give some sort of interview and talk about what the Yankees can do.

Trainer Gene Monahan: The long-time trainer and NASCAR fan will tell the players about what to do if they get hurt, even in the slightest.

Traveling Secretary Ben Tuliebitz: He’ll lay out the 411 on tickets, travel, who to call if you get arrested, wake up up in a sorority house, etc.

Media Relations Director Jason Zillo: He’ll implore the boys to be nice to the reporters. Half the team will go to get coffee at this point.

Assistant GM Jean Afterman: She will discuss legal and contractual issues.

Manager Joe Girardi: He’ll go last and probably talk the longest. Girardi says he has been thinking about what to say since he got hired. The basic theme: Stay healthy and win.
