Matt Dying to Be a Yankee
The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees have one outfielder who will miss the first five weeks of the regular season with a broken arm. They have another who persists, despite his manager's threats and pleadings, in going headfirst into first base even though he busted his thumb doing it a couple of years ago. And they have a third outfielder who pulls dangerous plants out of the ground with his bare hands. It's a good thing there are a dozen outfielders in camp this year even without Curtis Granderson, who will be out until May since getting hit by a J.A. Happ fastball in his first -- and only -- spring training at-bat on Sunday.
