It should be a quiet weekend here in Tampa.
Yesterday, the media was told not to expect any sort of activity until Monday. When I drove by the Yankees minor league complex mid-morning, there were three cars in the Yankees parking lot, and the only activity on the fields seemed to be two groups of non-Yankees — looked like high school kids — going through drills and maybe preparing for a game.
This is the calm before … not the storm exactly, more like the gentle precipitation of light bullpen sessions and pitchers fielding practice. But at least it’s baseball.
Pitchers and catchers report in less than 48 hours.
That’s a picture I took two years ago at the minor league complex. I completely forgot I had it on this computer until a few minutes ago. It gives some idea of what the place looks like if you’re still curious.
