Joe Girardi is here in Tampa and will meet with the media this afternoon. We’re not quite sure of the time as there will be a staff meeting first.
For now the plan is to head over to the morning workout at the minor-league complex and see what is going on over there. I’ll be back later with some more primo iPhone photos.
In case you were wondering — and you probably were not — the Yankees have a little name game going in camp.
As you know, they signed Mark Teixeira to play first base.
They also have RHP Kanekoa Texeira, who came over with Nick Swisher from the White Sox.
Mark has an extra letter “i” in his name. Kankoa does not. Back where I come from, we had a whole lot of Portuguese folks and they pronounced that name TEX-era. Mark pronounces it Tuh-SHARE-uh. I have no idea how Kanekoa pronounces it. He’s from Hawaii.
