You may have heard that the Yankees built a new stadium. Well, they’re moving in tomorrow.
Starting at 7 a.m., the Yankees will move nearly all of their employees across the street to their new offices. You think your last move was a pain? They have 1,500 plastic crates and will be using four trucks going back and forth.
The only aspects of the operation staying behind will be the ticket office, the mailroom and the clubhouse staff. They will make the move on Feb. 27.
Tomorrow’s date was set months ago, so the Yankees are right on schedule with their plans.
Sam Borden is on the Faceoff blog today wondering whether baseball needs a salary cap. Head over there is you want to offer an opinion.
I don’t believe a cap is needed and can sum up my argument with three words: Tampa Bay Rays.
Did you see the Oscar nominations? The Dark Knight didn’t get a Best Picture nod, although The Reader did. No Bruce Springsteen (who won the Golden Globe) for best song. There were only three nominations in that category, two from Slumdog Millionaire. No best actor for Clint Eastwood, either.
