A very good morning: There will be baseball tomorrow

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.
