Open Thread: 2/18 Camp Notes

Spring workouts are weird. (Presswire)

Spring workouts are weird. (Presswire)

The complex in Tampa is going to get much more crowded when position players officially report to Spring Training on Wednesday. Sure, a bunch of them are already in camp working out, but everyone will be there tomorrow. The Yankees will play their first exhibition game one week from today (vs. Florida State) and one week from tomorrow will be their first televised Grapefruit League game (vs. Pirates), so hooray for that. Here’s the latest from Tampa:

Here is your open thread for the evening. The Knicks are playing, plus the Olympics are still going on as well. Talk about that stuff, Spring Training, Jeter, or anything else right here. Have at it.

      Wonder how it’ll be remixed.

      • Now Batting says:

        Eh I have a hard time believing anything about a free agent who still has 2 mystery suitors heading into spring training. While I have a foot in the “no Drew” camp, I’d be lying if I said I had any idea about his demands/offers based on this offseason’s headlines.

    • TWTR says:

      It sounds like they made a whole bunch of offers (including to Choo and Drew), and were prepared to close a deal with whomever said yes first. That’s reasonable for a team with a lot of holes, a win-every-year philosophy, and very deep pockets. The only two players they appeared to have viewed as a completely unique in terms of talent and need were Tanaka and McCann.

  1. Jorge Steinbrenner says:

    Whoever’s left standing backs up McCann!

  2. vicki says:

    a preponderance of backwards batting helmets. i know john ryan and the sanchise favor the goalie masks but, an old-fashioned girl, i prefer the classic.

  3. hey now says:

    It looks like a North Korean photoshop. They’ve upped their game.

    I thought maybe this was a new form of Yoga.
