An afternoon in the park

I always find it a little strange to watch a team like the Yankees going through its usual pregame workout – stretching, throwing, batting practice – during an off day when the stadium is completely empty. The music is playing, the scoreboards are on, the media is here …. and there’s a ton of empty seats. It’s sort of like rattling around a big old house.

Anyway, the Yankees are on the field – A-Rod is taking his turn in the cage right now – and they’re going through their paces. Although these workouts are kind of routine, they’re also pretty important; by the time they get to Sunday, the Yankees will have played a grand total of three games in seven days, so they’re doing whatever they can to stay sharp.

Joe Girardi and A.J. Burnett will be meeting the media around 2:15 p.m. Back with much more later.
