Sam Borden of the Journal News was at Virginia Tech yesterday and writes about how much the Yankees coming to town means to first baseman Sean O’Brien. 
Our report includes a video interview  with O’Brien.
Nearly every notable Yankee is on their way to Blacksburg. This notebook  also has word on Joba Chamberlain waiting for an important meeting.
Andy Pettitte looked healthy and sent Big Papi a message yesterday. 
Sam is covering the Virginia Tech game. I’m headed over to the minor league complex to see Mike Mussina pitch at 1 p.m. Back later with an update.
