A very good morning: There will be baseball tomorrow

Posted by: Sam Borden - Posted in Misc on Feb 25, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Good morning from Steinbrenner Field, where crews are already working throughout the stadium to get it ready for tomorrow’s Grapefruit League opener against the Phillies. The main stadium is closed to fans today so everything can be shined and polished, but the Yankees will have workouts (though look for it to be a shorter day than usual).

Alas, there is no team-building outing planned – so save those quarters for the arcade – but I’m sure there will be plenty of talk about the fourth/fifth starter derby which begins tomorrow. Gotta love the spring training notes packets: Tomorrow’s starters are listed as Bartolo Colon (did not pitch in 2010) vs. Cole Hamels (12-11, 3.06 ERA). Baseball games – finally – are not so far away.

Back with much more later.

* That’s a (pretty poor) iPhone shot of one crew member up on a ladder working on the “K” in the Yankees sign.

    Shown in the above picture is a new addition at GMS Field this year of flags above the facade of all the championship years.
    Looking at them recently gave this guy an aged feeling. Full recollection with sixteen of them and two I was too young to remember.

  7. MTU February 25th, 2011 at 9:27 am

    Hallelujah.

    Real baseball.

    :)

    P.S. That’s perfect because the weather is gonna suck out here over the weekend.

    Yes, I love the banners! I couldn’t remember if they were up last year at Spring Training or not. I really like them.

    Huge game tom! it’s a MUST win. Joe better put the A lineup out there. So & Mo needs to go at least two innings apiece! morning.

    does anyone remember who ‘won’ ST last year?

  11. JCPD February 25th, 2011 at 9:35 am

    MTU, already 6 inches on the ground this morning. Betcha I’d rather have your weather. Must be something about the date. Last year on this day we had 13 inches of snow. Oh well, I KNOW spring is somewhat around the corner. ;-)

  12. Cashmoney February 25th, 2011 at 9:36 am

    Nope Kate, I was channeling my inner OGS! O=original.

  13. JCPD February 25th, 2011 at 9:37 am

    kate, I don’t remember, but it doesn’t matter, the season is non existent. The Sox have already won the winter, remember.

    Chad,

    Have they announced a more detailed pitching schedule? Like when guys are throwing in relief etc…..tell Joe that the nerds on your blog want to know.when the kids are pitching :)

  15. Erica in NY February 25th, 2011 at 9:42 am

    I agree. Tomorrow is a MUST win

    Whole season on the line right here.

  16. MTU February 25th, 2011 at 9:46 am

    JCPD-

    Yes. You probably would.

    We’re scheduled for a wintery mix.

    Mostly rain w. a little snow thrown in.

    Keep the faith. Lot’s of things get repealed but so far not Spring.

    ;)

    Seconded. Especially the three with last names beginning with the letter B. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Some of us may need to reshuffle the social calendar depending on what the schedule is :D .

    JackCurryYES Dellin Betances is confident. “My goal is to get there this year,” he said, meaning the majors. “If I told you differently, I’d be lying.”

    BryanHoch Mark Prior throwing live BP on the main diamond. Yogi Berra is watching from behind a screen in the infield.

    MTU -

    I finally got a chance to enjoy your latest pictures. Thank you so much for sharing.

    New Post: Prior, Banuelos throwing live BP on main field

    :arrow:

  23. Cashmoney February 25th, 2011 at 9:58 am

    I wonder if Prior does make the team out of ST who would he be replacing? I don’t see a lot of spot open in the bp. we got Mo,So,Feliciano,Logan,Joba and Robertson as a lock imo.

    Doreen-

    Glad you enjoyed them.

    You’re most welcome.
