While the Pirates were busy losing to Manatee Community College in Bradenton today, the Yankees spent the day working out at their new home for the first time. Derek Jeter hit the first homer – albeit an unofficial one – at the new place, even though some players (including Jorge Posada) are saying it’ll be tougher form righties to hit homers in this park than the old one. Andy Pettitte said he feels spoiled, although Joshua Robinson says the New Stadium looks like the Old Stadium with a face-lift and tummy-tuck. I’ll find out for myself on Saturday.
Here’s your open thread for the night, and if you were one of the 20,000 or so people who went to the workout today, we encourage you to share your thoughts on the place here. Otherwise you can talk about whatever your heart desires, just be nice to each other.
