Good morning from the familiar Delta terminal at LaGuardia. This is one of those mornings when I’m hoping some coffee and a nap on the plane will have a huge impact on my day. Last night didn’t include nearly enough sleep.
The Yankees are hoping this is one of those days that makes them forget the previous week. As Rick Carpiniello wrote in today’s paper, the team is struggling up and down the roster. “You don’t want to see your players go through it,” Joe Girardi said. “But you know that they are, and every one of them is going to go through it. But sometimes it’s hard to watch them go through it because you remember what it felt like to go through those periods.”
Also from today’s paper: Yogi Berra is getting his own statue.
