It’s not a particularly pretty day here in Tampa, and the tarp is still down on Steinbrenner Field. The Yankees are scheduled to go through a workout before the game with the Braves tonight at 7, but it sure does feel like thunderstorm weather – thick and windy. I’ll keep you posted on any developments.
If there is baseball tonight, the Yankees will likely see Braves wunderkind Jason Heyward but not, unfortunately, Melky Cabrera (who isn’t on the travel roster. Eric Hinske is, though). Listed as Yankees reserves tonight are, among others, Austin Romine, Jesus Montero, Colin Curtis, Mark Melancon and Dave Robertson.
While you’re waiting for the clouds to clear up, how about taking a look at this video of a piece of the upper deck at old Yankee Stadium coming down? Thanks to reader Jennifer for passing it on. It’s still hard to believe that, sooner than later, that stadium is going to be completely gone.
