Scenes from Photo Day

By

As you may have gathered from Mike’s camp notes, Monday was the long-awaited Photo Day down in Tampa. For a few hours, the Yankees posed in what apparently was the clubhouse bathroom at GMS Field as they tried their hardest to look serious. (A-Rod always fails.) As the photos hit the wire, I got a kick out of some of the poses.

Apparently, the photographers went for the faux-artsy look today as they snapped some shots via Instagram. We have hipster Joe Girardi, hipster Hiroki and the ever-intense hipster Frankie. Andy Pettitte showed up too, looking a few years older than when we last saw him.

With the filter off, Rafael Soriano looked as smiley as ever and so did Nick Swisher. He’s always just happy to be there. Voldemort apparently joined the team as one half of the club’s DH platoon, and Mo was beaming.

As always, we could probably run a full slide show of A-Rod making funny faces, but Michael Pineda might put an end to it. Derek looked a lot like Derek, but my favorite one of all was Eduardo Nunez. Enjoy.

    He’s the most interesting utility infielder in the world. He’s the life of practices he doesn’t attend. His mother has a tattoo that reads, “Burt Reynolds.”

      Tying in the Whimsey posts?

      I approve.

    Pettitte had one of the best stares from the mound…but if Pineda is bringing that…batters beware!! Lovin’ this guy already!

    I don’t always make a great play in the field.

    But when I do, I usually follow it up by airmailing the throw to first.

    • JMK

      Win.

    last time and then i’ll never say it again:

    tom sizemore + lance bass = frankie cervelli

  • LarryM.,Fl.

    His face says, ” just give me a chance I can play this game.”

  • Monterowasdinero

    Hard to believe The. New. York. Yankees cannot custom fit a helmet to Nunez’s size 5 head.

  • Paul VuvuZuvella

    Knowing these pics were taken 5 feet from the urninals will always taint the way I look at them. I knew the acoustics were good in there but who knew the lighting was perfect too.

    • Cris Pengiucci

      Perhaps the “aroma” from the urinals played a part in the look on their faces ….

    So as I scroll through the Daylife pictures, I got to say….

    Joba looks good. reeeeeeeeeal svelte.

      Jeter is rocking a serious double chin. I think his offseason workout partner was the Hamburglar?

      • Riddering

        If you’ve seen any other ST pictures you’d know he’s as scrawny as ever.

        • MannyGeee

          meh, double chins are genetic… my brother in law is skinny as a rail and has a double chin. no weights or p90x in the world can get rid of them.

    Here’s hoping Voldemort has some big HRs in that wand. AND nobody named Potter shows up on the mound. . ..

    • MannyGeee

      god is he ugly. just not a handsome man

  • Claudell

    More than once already, I’ve seen a photo of Ibanez with those huge mirrored wraparound sunglasses on, and mistook him for Girardi.
