Things we learned today
— Bernie Williams still fits into his old pinstripes nicely. And in the upset of the year, Yankees fans like Bernie Williams! Joe Girardi said that Bernie “brightened the room” and intends to have him chat with centerfielders Melky Cabrera and Brett Gardner in the days to come.
— After commandeering Johnny Damon’s music machine, Nick Swisher revealed that he has a terrible singing voice. He sure is enthusiastic, though.
— Pitchers really are ahead of the hitters. The quartet of Justin Leone, Ramiro Pena, John Rodriguez and Chase Weems went meekly against CC Sabathia. Meanwhile, Brian Bruney and Joba Chamberlain handcuffed Jorge Posada, A-Rod, Mark Teixeira and Damon.
— The Yankees have new road batting practice jerseys, with NEW YORK in silver across the chest. They’re not bad looking.
