The only reason there were Joe Girardi quotes floating around today was the fact Girardi served as a kind of host for this morning’s USO event at Yankee Stadium. Girardi, David Cone and Michael Kay were all on hand as a large group of volunteers helped load care packages being shipped to soldiers. Girardi, Cone and Kay have participated in this event before, and Girardi seems to genuinely enjoy it.
Above is video of Girardi, Cone and Kay basically kicking off the event by thanking everyone for showing up. If you feel like watching some prospects, there’s an Arizona Fall League game on MLB Network right now. As luck would have it, one of the teams involved is the one with Yankees prospects on the roster. Unfortunately, Peter O’Brien is the only Yankees position player in the Scottsdale lineup.
But, if you want to watch one of the best bats in the Yankees farm system, he’s right there on television.
