Sam and I are at Yankee Stadium this morning for the first game of the New York’s media’s two-game series against the Boston media. We play one game at Yankee Stadium and one game at Fenway Park. Last year we split the series, with each team winning on the road.
Tyler Kepner of the Times is on the mound for New York. Bryan Hoch of MLB.com and Bob Klapisch of The Record are available out of the pen. I’ll have some updates later.
For now, just a heads up…
After tonight’s postgame show, at approximately 11 p.m., the YES Network will debut the Yankeeography of manager Joe Girardi.
Several current and former Yankees players, coaches, executives and broadcasters were interviewed including Hal Steinbrenner, Brian Cashman, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, Mark Teixeira, Joe Torre, Paul O’Neill, David Cone, Al Leiter and Ken Singleton.
In addition, the Yankeeography includes interviews with Kim Girardi (Joe’s wife), Dave Roberts (his Little League coach), Paul Stevens (Northwestern assistant baseball coach when Girardi played there), Don Zimmer (when managed Girardi as a rookie with the Cubs), Mike Harkey (current bullpen coach and former Cubs pitcher, still one of Girardi’s closest friends), Don Baylor (Rockies manager while Girardi was with team), and Bob Watson (the former Yankees GM).
