Swisher plays DJ for a morning

Johnny Damon (who else?) has a large portable speaker stack on wheels that you can plug an iPod into. Music is generally not allowed in the clubhouse except for after games.

But Nick Swisher, unfamiliar with the buttoned-down ways of the Yankees, plugged his iPod in and turned up the tunes. “My clubhouse mix,” he said. “I listen to a lot of country. But I have some other stuff, too.”

His other stuff was solid. He played Live Your Life by T.I. and Rihanna and One More Drink by Ludacris and T-Pain. The guys were digging it.

Meanwhile, there will be live batting practice today. Brian Bruney and Joba Chamberlain will face Damon, A-Rod, Mark Teixeira and Jorge Posada.

CC Sabathia will take on Justin Leone, John Rodruguez, Chase Weems and Ramiro Pena. Good luck to those guys.

The team is on the field now and I’ll be back later on with some reports and iPhone photos.
