Here is a look around the Yankee Universe on a beautiful Easter Sunday morning (yes, I should be getting ready for church, but anything for you guys!).
- Nick Swisher's torrid hitting won't continue, but he sure is enjoying the ride.
"I'm absolutely loving it," Swisher said. "It's like I almost don't want to wake up. I don't want to soak it in right now. I want to keep that fire, keep that passion and keep that attitude going right now.
"When I come to the ballpark, I feel confident. I know in this game, you're going to go through ups and downs, but right now, things seem to be going pretty well."
I can't remember anyone the Yankees have had in recent years with a personality like Swisher's. You have to love the guy's attitude and enthusiasm. Here is what he said about hitting third in the lineup last night.
"I got to hit three-hole!" he said. "I got to hit in the three-hole for the New York Yankees! I was really excited about that one."
- Peter Abraham says Mark Teixeira, out last night with a sore wrist, expects to play today.
- CC Sabathia pitched 7 2/3 shutout innings in the 6-1 victory over Kansas City, and said he felt "100 percent better" than he did in his first start.
- Pete Abe takes a look at the new Yankee Stadium, and says there is a class system in the stadium's design.
