It was strange pulling into the parking lot and seeing the new Stadium rising and hearing the sounds of construction. Makes you want to get a look at the old place and soak it all in before it’s gone.

Clubhouse opens in seven minutes. Meanwhile, a few little records for you:

The Yankees are 61-43-1 on Opening Day, 28-10 at the Stadium. They are 16-11 in presidential election years. When the Yankees win at home on Opening Day, the GOP is 4-1 in the election. When the Yankees lose, the Democrats are 3-0.

So we know who Obama and Hillary are rooting for.
