Quick Bits: Derek Jeter, Name Game, Joe Girardi
Here are a few more items on the day:
- Harold Reynolds sat down with Derek Jeter for a great 10-minute interview on the MLB Network.
- Talk about a challenge—here’s a name game where you’re asked to recall all of the 2009 Yankees.
- Don Amore of Rivalry Central spoke to manager Joe Girardi about the Yankees upcoming season.
Girardi remains unwilling to commit to Brett Gardner in left field. When asked whether or not left field was “up for grabs,” Girardi said, “I think so. You look at it as a spot we need to fill… It may end up being a platoon situation. That third outfielder is not etched in stone.” Gardner could end up in center field, instead, with Curtis Granderson in left.
