This feels familiar

I remember this place.

As if we never left, the whole crew is back in Arlington where the Yankees are going through a standard workout at Rangers Ballpark. I honestly believed I was going to write on the plane and have plenty to post as soon as I landed. Instead, I predictably slept while flying across something like a quarter of the country.

With the late notice of the playoffs, it’s pretty much impossible to find a direct flight out of any New York airport without paying several thousand dollars, so most of the writers had to connect. I ate French toast in Charlotte, then fell back asleep. My usual travel friend Sweeny Murti apparently missed a connection and is stranded somewhere in America. One writer — let’s just say he brings the news daily — drove all the way to Philly to get a direct flight.

One small bit of news from the ballpark:

The Yankees have completed their trade for Kerry Wood, sending RHP Andrew Shive and 2B Matt Cusick to Cleveland. Neither is considered a premier prospect.

Joe Girardi and Phil Hughes will speak to the media in about a half hour, then the clubhouse will open. Sam and I will have some updates after we get the chance to ask some questions.
