My friends in Tampa were reporting gray skies this morning. Although it cleared up after a while, it seems there wasn’t much going on down there today. Things will probably stay relatively quiet until Monday, when camp actually opens and Joe Girardi addresses the media.
• Russell Martin did some drills that had him squatting for a second straight day. That’s good news for his knee and hip.
• Larry Rothschild was in the mix and said he feels good about A.J. Burnett after going to Burnett’s house this winter. He said Burnett’s head is in a good place.
• Rothschild also compared the Yankees current bullpen to the Cincinnati bullpen of the early 90s. That’s the Nasty Boys group, and that’s a rock solid reference. Rothschild was their bullpen coach.
• Also back in the mix: Both Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain.
