It’s not the full list like we were given when the Yankees were home, but here are the important times that were released this afternoon. (Times are local/Eastern)
3:25/4:25 p.m. Twins Batting Practice
4:30/5:30 p.m. Yankees Batting Practice
6:07/7:07 p.m. First Pitch
It’s not everything, but it’s what we have.
Also, I was going through my notes and such from Friday’s game and found Nick Swisher’s explanation of that fourth-inning play when he threw out Carlos Gomez at second base to keep a run from scoring. That play was huge at the time, but wound up lost in the excitement of extra innings. Since it’s an off day and there’s not much else going on, here’s Swisher…
“I kind of caught him out of the corner of my eye,” he said. “He’s so fast, I don’t think he knew if he was going to be able to stop or not. I kind of saw him slip and fall and Jeet just happened to be standing there right on the bag. I just tried to throw as hard as I could.”
Asked whether he considered throwing home, Swisher said, “No. If I had a cannon like Melky or something, maybe, but not with my arm. I’ve got to be smart.”
