Joe Girardi announced his lineup for tomorrow:
Joe said he gave the team a brief talk today that was mainly, “keep doing what you have been doing.”
Joba Chamberlain threw in a minor-league intrasquad game today in Tampa. His line:
5 innings, 3 hits, 1 earned run 3 walks, 5 strikeouts, 76 pitches / 50 strikes.
Girardi said he is waiting for Alex Rodriguez to return a message so he can find out how his rehab is progressing.
The team took a special train to Baltimore from Penn Station. “I had never been on a train before,” said Nick Swisher, who grew up in Ohio and played most of his career in California. “Pretty cool.”
The players were all trying on their new caps with the Yankee Stadium patch on the back.
