A Sign of Spring

This is a fantastic day..

Pitchers and catchers checked in yesterday, but today marks the first full day of practice and drills..

This has to be one of my favorite parts of the season. Every team comes in with a clean slate.

In the next few days we'll be hearing interviews and reports from all the camps, we'll get a look at the new comers on the team. We'll get to see what a Joe Giradri led Yankee team looks like. Things will slowly start to take shape, we'll get a feel for what the lineup will look like, as well as the rotation and bullpen.

This is a team that is a lot different from the last few years. It is filled with youth, but still has the solid veteran presence that we're use to.. Slowly this Yankee team will develop an identity of it's own that it will carry through this season.. And that all starts today.

Heres a link to NewsDay who have some pictures from yesterday.

Hey Dman! It IS a great day! There is nothing a good as the begining of a new season. It really helps through the dark dreary days of late winter up north. Plus, I love a trip to St Pete to warm the bones and see the boys in action. Are you going to get down there this year?
