The Daily Yankeeland - 3/11

The Yankees style is buttoned up corporate; Nick Swisher has other ideas.
Johnny Damon, who dresses next to Swisher, says Swisher “knows that this is a short part of our lives, and he is going to enjoy it to the fullest.”
George King of the Post has a piece on the Yankees current third baseman. That would be Cody Ransom.

Mike Mussina and his family visited the Yankees yesterday and watched last night's game.

The Yankees travel to Lakeland today to take on the Tigers in a 1:05 start. CC Sabathia gets the start for the Yanks.

Peter Abraham has a live video chat scheduled for Noon EDT today.

Mariano Rivera threw a BP session today and felt good afterwards. Jesus Montero and John Rodriguez were the guinea pigs.

Investigators found evidence of steroids on the needles that Brian McNamee allegedly injected Roger Clemens with. The Rocket's DNA had already been found on the same needles. Clemens' attorney, Rusty Hardin, was quick to dismiss the test, stating in not so many words that McNamee had tamperedwith the evidence.

Andy Pettitte was in D.C. last week to meet with investigators on the Clemens' perjury case.

The Yankees are being proactive in killing germs in the new digs.

A new autobiography of George Steinbrenner, says the Yankees owner and olympic backer, supported skaters Tanya Harding, Nicole Bobek, and Ron Karnaugh in the early '90s. Yes, that would be when Harding's goons "laid the pipe" to Nancy Kerrigan. The Steinbrenner camp says they don't remember funding Harding at all. King George doesn't have good taste in picking out skaters though. Bobek was arrested for home invasion in 1994.
