The Yankees formally introduced Brian McCann, their newest catcher, in a press conference today at 2:00 pm. Brian Cashman, Hal Steinbrenner, Randy Levine, Joe Girardi, and McCann's wife and extended family were all on hand to welcome McCann to New York.

Here are some quotes from the press conference in case you missed it.

Assorted notes:

  • Yankees had #34 onesies for McCann's kids
  • McCann is very, extremely bald
  • McCann called Mark Teixeira, who he briefly played with in Atlanta, to discuss playing in New York.
  • Staying on the East Coast was a big deal for him
  • Felt no reservations about the Yankees spending this offseason to be a contender
  • McCann noted that the team wasn't done making moves
  • Happy about the Jacoby Ellsbury signing, calling him one of the best center fielders in baseball
