Yankees (some of them) get some work in

The Yankees are engaged in optional batting practice at the moment at Tropicana Field.

Here’s how you can tell it’s optional. Alberto Gonzalez, Jose Molina, Chad Moeller and Shelley Duncan are the only players here.

Now before you think that the other guys are lazy dogs, sometimes extra hitting is too much hitting. If taking 500 swings in optional BP every day meant you would hit .330, everybody would do it. Players have their routines and getting to the park at 2:15 p.m. to take hacks is often not part of the routine.
