Not only will both the Yankees and Rays be warned before tomorrow’s game, MLB is adding veteran crew chief Jerry Crawford to the original umpiring crew.

Spring training games are often handled by three-man crews. But because of the animosity between the teams. MLB is taking an extra step.

Derek Jeter said it “would be stupid” if anything tomorrow. He’s right about that. But this whole incident has been stupid since it started.
