Through some odd blip in the baseball schedule, the Yankees are not playing today. That hasn’t happened since March 31.
Some of the guys went to Chicago and will enjoy the day off there. Others went back to New York or their homes elsewhere. The Yankees will meet up again at U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday. There’s optional early batting practice at 2 p.m.
It’s a day off for me, too. I’m not sure how much blogging there will be but at the very least we’ll try and get an update from the Yankees on A-Rod’s condition.
Meanwhile, the Yankees play 13 straight days starting Tuesday. That will make it 33 games in 34 days with 18 of the games coming on the road. Twenty percent of the season will be over by May 4. How crazy is that?
