Derek Jeter uttered a very telling remark this afternoon, regarding Joe Girardi's insistence on running.
From Bryan Hoch:
Derek Jeter was asked today if he missed Joe Torre. Pausing for a few beats before delivering an off-the cuff remark, Jeter said, "Yeah, I missed him ... when we were running."Is this what Joe Torre was doing during his time as a manager? Hoch mentions that a pitcher said that Torre wasn't running a country club, but Girardi is having his players work hard this spring, and this will only be a good thing.
The Yankees had many a hamstring give out early last season, so the players need to be better conditioned. If this makes the players uncomfortable at the beginning of training, so be it.
