Here is a look around the vast New York Yankee Universe on a rainy Monday here in the Northeast.
- NorthJersey.com has an overview both the new Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, new home of the New York Mets. By the way, does it annoy anyone else that there are whispers that Citi Field is a nicer stadium than the new home of the Yankees? Here are a couple of cool videos from Citi Field.
- We know Brett Gardner will be in center field Opening Day (hooray!). We don't know who the 12th reliever or backup infielder will be. It seems Ramiro Pena has a good chance at the backup infield job, though. By the way, both Peter Abraham and the folks at YankeesRedSox.com think it will be a mistake if the Yankees don't carry a true long reliever.
- The New York Daily News says the Yankees need big seasons from Jorge Posada and Hideki Matsui.
- A.J. Burnett is not concerned about Sunday's rough outing.
