People Get Ready

There is less than a week before pitchers and catchers report to Yankeeland, which means the puff pieces are about to begin. Hey, it’s better’n’nada, right? (Well, at least for a few weeks anyway.) While Pedro Martinez [1] made headlines in New York today [2] for reporting to camp early, several Yankee veterans, including including Mariano Rivera [3], Flash Gordon, Gary Sheffield [4], Tino Martinez [5], and Derek Jeter, are already working out at the Yankees minor league complex. Jetes [6] and Alex Rodriguez [7] may not be best friends any longer, but Jeter [8] isn’t about to stoak any sort of feud with Rodriguez. They will be pitted against one another by the local press, but I doubt they’ll ever become another Reggie and Thurman. Never mind that soap opera anyhow. The Glimmer Twins will move to the sidelines in the next few days when Jason Giambi [9] is expected to address the media for the first time since the end of the 2004 season. Man, talk about one uncomfortable situation. Yeesh.
